Description

In a series of tender, bite-sized poems on being a writer, loneliness, faith, patriarchy, climate change, grief, and more, Crystal Warren offers up an ode to the every day. With Warren’s signature light touch, Predictive Text is sensitive, unaffected, a relief from the brash, unrelenting tumult of twenty-first century life, while tethered to deeper truths.

Exrait

Crystal Warren has distilled the art of poetry to its rarefied essence. Her words are simple and immediately accessible, but reward multiple re-readings and long scrutiny. She contemplates the divine with the same rapt attention that she gives to the vicissitudes of children. The fear that runs like a dark thread through this collection is the dread of being silenced or unheard - a poet s fear of having her voice taken away. Predictive Text ensures that this fear is moot, because Warren s words will certainly live on. - Fiona Snyckers
