UNIVERSITY OF TORONTO LINKS
"This impressive collection should put her on the Canlit map."
-from The Toronto Star: Barbara Carey.
"Young poet Graham's Pupa is a debut collection of
graceful concision and surprising wisdom…The 15 short poems in the
section Pupa imagine a strange, haunting netherworld of dolls, and the
concluding Imago section completes the poet's work with the
exhilarating, self-birthing, final words."
-from The Times-Colonist (Victoria, B.C.): Joseph Blake.
"Pupa, Catherine Graham's first book length collection has much to recommend
it. …brief yet resonant…the sophistication of their brevity, remind me of Roethke."
-from The Fiddlehead: M. Travis Lane.
"Graham's jewel-like poems reflect facets of loss, grief, and love."
-from Independently Reviewed: Janice Battiste, New York.
"Now returned to her native southwestern Ontario,
Graham is a young poet whose work should be closely attended to."
-from Arc, Winter, 2002: Cheryl Sutherland.
"She dives sensually into experience and enables the reader to follow. She writes what happens so that it happens again."
-from Poetry Ireland Review 61: Aine Miller.
"Graham has much promise as a poet, and makes one eager to read a full collection of her work."
-from InCognito, Volume 2 (Dublin, Ireland): Nessa O'Mahony.
"…language resurrects and at the same time revivifies the ordinary, the every day, in a new light."
-from Books Ireland, April 1999: Fred Johnston.
