Praise

Praise for Anne Simpson:
“With the experimentalism of Anne Carson and the imagism of Anne Michaels, Anne Simpson explores the globe of the heart.”
— Halifax Chronicle-Herald

“Anne Simpson’s voice is instantly recognizable. . . . [She writes] poems of extraordinary range, intelligence and empathy.” 
— Jury citation, Pat Lowther Memorial Award

“Simpson turns our attention to the sharp edges of life, and she does it with language that juxtaposes beauty with death, creating internal tension in the poems. Simpson looks at death and loss with an unsentimental eye.” 
Canadian Literature

“With its strong lyric voice and simple yet dynamic forms, [Simpson’s work] draws you and draws you in. Simpson’s intelligent poetic language renders, in three dimensions, images of compelling resonance. . . .” 
Quill & Quire
