Reviews / Endorsements

“She is a poet of necessary disequilibrium. With stubborn persistence, each poem struggles for balance, usually resulting in a draw between the limitations of personal comprehension and a vast naturalness of automatic being in the surround, often depicted in minutiae. A yearning for expansion of spirit ends up (almost) settling for the yearning itself. Remarkably, her poem-endings often echo this compromise yet strike the reader as quite various in what they notice or their manner of insistence.”—Ron Slate, On the Seawall

“The haunting poems that make up Katie Peterson's Permission move, smoke-like, through landscapes, both interior and those belonging to the natural world, landscapes that interpenetrate in often unexpected, sometimes startling fashion.It is a poetry of search, chiefly for completion or wholeness, amidst the world of forms and various weathers, not least the weather of sexual desire, and, almost as if by happenstance, unearthing all manner of wonders along the way.”—August Kleinzahler
