Another rave review of Scar


Katy Lewis Hood, a postgraduate student interested in women's contemporary poetry and the anthropocene (as I learned from her blog), reviews Scar for Sabotage Reviews and concludes: "Here, sonic echoes – from ‘slink’ to ‘shiver’ to ‘fish’, from ‘feline’ to ‘butterfly’ to ‘glide’ –create interconnections across the lines; even the seemingly desolate landscape of ‘stunted stalks, palest soil’ is shown to harbour a complex, living ecosystem of which the speaker is a part. As a result, the mark that Scar leaves is not clear cut, but rather shifting, responsive, and intricate. Inviting attention to details as well as large-scale effects, Etter’s pamphlet makes a haunting yet vital contribution to environmental poetry." You can read the complete review here.
