Two strong reviews of Talon poetry were published last week; if you haven’t seen them yet, they are worth a read. Nathaniel G. Moore of Rabble.ca responded to the clarion call within Cecily Nicholson’s From the Poplars, and Lee Norton for the Ethos Review immersed himself in the contractions and contradictions of Nikki Reimer’s DOWNVERSE. From the former, a highlight:
From the Poplars is a compelling blend of poetic research, personal infusion and historical subjectivity while remaining urgent and insightful. It’s a call to arms for environmental consciousness, and a text monument of loss and shame.
