There’s a review of AUP New Poets 3 by Cy Mathews in the latest Takahe. Having failed miserably to upload a copy, here are a couple of quotes:
“Wellington’s Janis Freegard stands out with the easy musicality of her poems and prose poems, amongst which are moments of quirky brilliance…”
“At times these narratives risk becoming a little cutesy in their quirky, mannered eccentricity, but for the most part they are very enjoyable…”
“…”The Continuing Adventures of Alice Spider” is an especially interesting experiment in serial prose poetry, for the most part realistic, but veering now and then into more surrealistic flights of fancy…”
Congratulations – I thought it was a very positive review of your section of the book.
Thanks Helen – I’ve been really pleased with the reviews so far. Nice to see the glowing review of ‘My Iron Spine’ too!
