Evaristo Ten

‘This thrilling, moving, challenging and inspiring new anthology introduces 10 sparkling new talents who demonstrate the richness, energy and confidence of the poetic voice in our multicultural country. It is a joyful and important moment in publishing.’
Carol Ann Duffy, Poet Laureate

‘A powerful command of form and rhythm inherent in the broken and fragmentary structures of her sequence Yellow Logic.’
Alan Brownjohn, Poetry Review

‘Karen McCarthy Woolf ’s Yellow Logic, a six-poem sequence, is dedicated to Otto, “born and died 7 August 2009.” The sequence begins in fragmented disarray, evidencing underlying turmoil. Emotive material requires skilful technique to create good poetry, and the pauses, spacing and line-breaks combine to create a memorable picture of struggle…The poem becomes increasingly direct as it goes on, always under control, but the emotional effect isn’t deadened by clever technique. Quite the opposite, in fact.’
Rob Mackenzie, Magma
