Comments Inventing the Hawk

    Lorna Crozier's voice is unique. i adore her poetry.


  • sami al-khalili

    One hundred and forty pages of poetry are like lighting a candle in one hundred and forty environments. The wick is the duration of each poem, it doesn't matter whether it is day or night, each poem gave off the ambiance: the scent of the candle. A must read is Metamorphasis.


  • Jan magdalene

    lorna crozier is sort of god. even, lots of the poems in this book didn't have the most connection or whatever to my experience but it was still fucking skilled and made me feel like i was on a drug while i was reading it the whole time.
