Review quote

"A poetry that is both innocently free-ranging and intellectually sharp, sensuously abundant yet elegantly restrained." Times Literary Supplement "Superlatives glint all over commentary on Lorna Goodison's work these days. She is now 'one of the greatest!,' 'one of the most important,' 'a singular voice,' 'a poet of great stature' and of course 'one of the best writing in English today.' She deserves all of this... She is solidly located in the trinity of Caribbean writing. It is now, officially, Walcott, Braithwaite and Goodison." Kwame Dawes, Caribbean Writer "A world class writer." Globe and Mail
