Author of three books of poems, Martha Rhodes is a master of tone and compression. Louise Glück praised her debut collection, At the Gate, as "savage, wry, mordantly witty, tender, stern, deluded, [and] sane," calling it "a book of immense vitality and beauty, deserving our deepest attention."

Rhodes's second book, Perfect Disappearance, won the 2000 Green Rose Prize from New Issues Press.

Robert Pinsky declared her latest book, Mother Quiet, to be "abrupt, unsettling, artfully distorted, indelible" and James Longenbach recommended it as "dark, hilarious, direct, otherworldly."
