Praise for If I Were in a Cage I'd Reach Out for You

“In its exploration of intimacy, If I Were in a Cage is at its most reverent and mystical.” Room Magazine

“It is a recounting of the utterly mystifying enigma of anything that dares to call itself love. Here is a rich pageant of synesthesia-inducing imagery.”
~ Paul Alardeau, Pacific Rim Review of Books, Fall 2017

“These lines—metaphorically rich and balanced with detail and ambiguity—are representative of Adèle Barclay’s assured debut.”
~ ARC Poetry Journal, September 2017

“Brims with cracking imagery and whip-smart delivery.”
The Winnipeg Free Press
