A Crown of Flames is a celebration that delves into the mysteries of human civilization, illuminating the hidden depths of our shared human experience. Cruciani's words evoke a sense of awe and reverence for the natural world. Each poem in this collection feels like a masterful exploration of the soul, inviting readers to see the world in new and profound ways."​-Tshaka Campbell, Santa Clara County Poet Laureate, author of Tunnel Vision (NaturalKink Enterprises, 2018)​"Flaminia Cruciani's A Crown of Flames is a lush, often times terrifying, mythic, end/restart of civilization-a tour of the history of literature, philosophy, and western ideals-churning images that range between pastoral and apocalyptic. A book of revelations-quixotic, Odyssean, Catholic, and quintessentially Italian."​--Linda Ravenswood, Winner of the Oxford Prize in Poetry and Edwin Markham Prize in Poetry​"Flaminia Cruciani--a high priestess of poetry; steadfast custodian of word and metre--burns meanings into visions; scolds thoughts into actions. A Crown of Flames bears witness in English to the breadth and depth of her inspiration." --Marco Sonzogni, Director of New Zealand Centre for Literary Translation, Victoria University of Wellington​
