Praise

Praise for Tim Lilburn:

“Lilburn’s work is richly figurative, but firmly rooted in colloquial speech. He is not only a virtuoso at the linguistic level, taking risks with metaphor and line, but also steeped in a metaphysics of place.” 
—Jury citation, Governor General’s Award
 
“His long dense melodic lines are full of verve and snap, offering lightning changes in register and a reluctance to leave any part of speech unturned. . . .”
—Globe and Mail
 
“Striking and original. . . . [Lilburn captures] the mystical and ecstatic moments when self and world are united.” 
—Booklist
 
“Tim Lilburn brings us face to face with the beguiling, bewildering strangeness of the world.” 
—The Fiddlehead
 
“One of our more thoughtful and inventive poets.” 
—Quill & Quire
