In Elegy for the Norther Flying Squirrel and Divers, Becker takes up the science of climate change and habitat loss.

Language that is by turns virtuosic and quiet, astonishing and accurate, writes a reviewer of Beckers 2006 collection, Domain of Perfect Affection for Jewish Book World Magazine. The challenge of aligning loss with love exerts a potent tension in Tiger Heron, as age comprises mortal bodies and intimacies end. A self-mocking wit propels characters to find and lose and find each other againin the imagination and in the stories these poems tell.

The final line of The Sounds of YiddishSpare us what we can learn to endurecloses a playful send-up, dramatizing language, culture, and power. Writing in The Washington Post, former U.S. Poet Laureate Robert Pinsky praises Beckers comic timing.

Longtime readers of Beckers work will delight in poems cast in a variety of stanzas and experimental forms. Their occasions are diversean animal shelter, a failed trip to Venice, a hospice bedsidebut Becker ultimately yokes a language of praise to our stumbling, humble, human efforts.
