Reviews

“This is a remarkable collection from an accomplished poet who uncovers the new historicism in cultural poetics, rather than deconstruction.” – Feminist Caucus

“But the true captivating force behind this collection is Smith’s obvious fascination with a woman at odds with her time… he poetically captures the emotive authenticity of the time in which she lived.” – Journal of Canadian Poetry
