” In these poems of witness and empathy, E A Gleeson gives voice to the suffering and enduring spirits of people across the world…Her language is rich and playful, her imagery memorable and heartfelt. Here is a poet unafraid to ask the right questions.”

– Brendan Ryan –

” Inquisitive, philosophical, with a sly sense of humour and splashes of sharp imagery, E A Gleeson’s main subject is her self or should I say, “the self” in the world. This world that threatens and harms. This world that loves and delights.”

– Mike Ladd –
