Catherine Hunter · Poetry

“Catherine Hunter’s is a full, assured and original voice. With its complex, driving rhythms, its clarity, playfulness, imaginative breadth and emotional range, it’s a voice full of surprises.”

George Amabile

“In one of the poems from this marvellous book, Catherine Hunter talks about ‘receivers opening / like petals or like knifeblades.’ All of Lunar Wake keeps you on this edge: never sure whether the next poem will open like a petal on some unanticipated beauty, or whether it will cut, cleanly, like a knife. And in another poem, she dreams that someone ‘named the moon after me.’ In appreciation of these poems, it's the least we could do.”
