'This book reveals an eye remarkable for its acute perception of the commonplace (making fresh the grain and texture of everyday things), and equally remarkable for the intensely physical vision it brings to her own distinctive world.'

''signs & voices is the first book of English language poems by a writer whose previous collections have appeared in German: Stationen in 1968, aufenthalte in 1969, and innere sicherheit, concurrently with this one.'
'Taken as a whole, signs & voices cuts a progressive curve of experience: intelligent, unusual, and rising at best to a vivid power. The book is a real collection, not merely an assembly of individual pieces. Part of the attraction and difficulty of the poems lies in their character as products of a second language, although their merits glow through and transcend this initial unfamiliarity. Jurgensen's seriousness is not a thing to set apart from his poetry.'' (Source : Author's website)St Lucia : University of Queensland Press , 1973
