Poetry Review Roundup

It seems Patternicity is getting a little bit of love these days. The latest counsel comes from Angela Hibbs, who reviewed Patternicity as part of Broken Pencil’s Poetry Review Roundup (an online feature that corresponds with Issue 48). The roundup also includes reviews of Jay MillAr’s Other Poems, Meaghan Strimus’s A Good Time Had By All, Priscila Uppal’s Traumatology, Jeff Latosik’s Tiny Frantic Stronger, Anna Swanson’s The Night Also and Sharon McCartney’s for and against.

Good company, to be sure.

Hibbs writes: “Johnstone communicates his vision of the world with sharp jabs, such as in “On Bohr’s Mode Of Atomic Structure” where the line “skull of a chandelier” reclaims the chandelier from the jewelry realm of comparison where it is most frequently found and shifts its resemblance adequately to that of a squid. The squid is seen afresh as well as the chandelier, all in four words.”  The rest of the review is linked above.
