About Swan Feast, Julie Carr writes, "Natalie Eilbert’s powerful first book is a twenty-first century hymn to the Venus of Wilendorf, a 30,000-year-old figurine whose ample body is a protest against all that seeks to diminish us. Like Plath of 'Lady Lazarus,' Eilbert speaks with unbridled but precise rage; in lines of propulsive music she takes female self-loathing head on and reveals it for what it is, pervasive, invasive, and invented, like a city that threatens to divest us of our human/animal body."
Feng Sun Chen writes, "Swan Feast is the banquet of a fallen goddess, told through the trance of an autobiographical duckling girl. The transforming voice is visionary. She connects the discovery of the Venus of Willendorf to the discovery of oil in the Middle East, implicating imperial industrialism to the passing away of Venus into faded memory and historical anorexia."
