Previous Review quote from Other Poems

Praise for MillAr's previous work:

“MillAr writes in a taut shorthand that combines the observational precision of a naturalist with a postmodernist
interest in how language shapes our perceptions... But [he]
doesn’t abandon traditional lyricism altogether; indeed, he has a knack for ear-pleasing, evocative phrasing. In False Maps for Other Creatures, MillAr doesn’t offer infallible paths of meaning through his meditations on place. But he does invite readers to make their own connections and discoveries.”
―Barbara Carey, The Toronto Star

“The poems in this book are undeniably fruitious and wild. They embody language as a growing, sensate thing. Each line quivers like an open ended nerve…”
―Kemeny Babineau, The Danforth Review
