Awards

Governor General’s Literary Award – Poetry WINNER 1997

Praise

“As behind most of our human celebrations, there are tragedies being played out behind the curtain of joy, for Brand is well aware of the world’s longings and despairs, how we are all the offspring of slaves, and/or – what is so much harder to bear – the offspring of slave owners.”
Quill & Quire

“Brand’s distinguished voice and articulate vision situate her galaxies beyond most contemporary practitioners of poetry.”
Globe and Mail

“Brand’s poetry is confrontational/confessionalism. She uses her life experiences to talk about oppression of many sorts in the Caribbean and Canada. She attempts to find links between different kinds of oppression – and that is the strength of her work. It is multilayered. There may be a nihilist tendency – but it is justified.”
–George Elliott Clarke

“You don’t read Dionne Brand, you hear her.”
Toronto Life
