Poetry. "Full of vatic intrigue and exuberance, Catherine Blauvelt's poems demonstrate again and again how lexical intoxication can lead to clarity and wisdom, and, vitally, that a poem is a site of celebration no matter its tragic sources and discoveries. Here is a book for what ails us." —Dean Young
"Blauvelt makes it all possible."—Cole Swensen
"A high–wire linguistic balancing act that revels in as–yet–unexplored possibilities of language. . . . An entirely singular voice."—Dora Malech
"A record of forms of thinking, feeling and hearing which are new to the universe. These poems are brilliant, fast, committed and strange objects which channel an almost unbearable sympathy for almost everything."—Caleb Klaces
