Abstract: 
"In Beatriz Badikian's Mapmaker we are witness to the cartographer's presence as much as we are to the maps themselves - maps made of words, images, lines of exile, travel, love and longing, loss and celebration. As we move from poem to poem, reading, there is increasingly apparent the growth and consistency of a voice, a poetic speech that is quite recognizable the author's own. Fluent in two languages, Beatriz Badikian is touching in her quiet accomplishment, her lyrical strength." -- Ralph J. Mills, Jr.
