Praise for Where the Words Come From

"For anyone interested in the craft, and yes, even the business of being a Canadian poet (if that's not oxymoronic), these literally 'thought-full' conversations are well worth your attention." -Robert Moore, Winnipeg Free Press

"Without question, this is an important archive of contemporary Canadian concerns with regard to craft and poetic pilosophy. . . . The willingness of many interviewers to explore questions through their own poetic strategies provides an interesting, contrapuntal resonance to these discussions. Where the Words Come From is a collection of important and compelling conversations that offers glimpses of the multifarious textures of thought in contemporary Canadian poetry and of the real personalities that have given and continue to give it shape." -Adam Dickinson, Canadian Literature

"real pleasures."
-Fraser Sutherland, Globe and Mail

"An important book, not just for Canadian poets and poetry readers, but particularly for students and studies (both historical and critical) of Canadian literature; there aren’t enough such collections."
-Geoffrey Cook, The Danforth Review
