In her introduction of Bonnie Roberts at a 1992 reading in Dublin, poet Paula Meehan, of Poetry Ireland and author of The Man Who Was Marked by Winter, had the following to say about Roberts's work:
"When I first came across Bonnie Roberts' work...I was absolutely, immediately exhilarated with the same kind of exhilaration as when I first opened Neruda, a sense of a whole landscaping singing through a person. What Neruda did to mold the contours of Chile, I think Bonnie Roberts is doing with English to mold the contours of her much beloved South...I think she's an extraordinary poet."
