Poetry. "Anyone who still wants to view experimentation as a purely intellectual exercise will be convinced otherwise by Donna de la Perrière's exquisite second collection. Under the threat or promise of erasure and at the edge of silence, the poet deftly leads us through a shifting, minimalist landscape. Wrestling with change and stasis, with the resistance and sudden give of the real, she delicately monitors each stage of what feels like a pilgrimage, while defamiliarization pressures vision and makes each breath at once artful and endlessly brave. SAINT ERASURE saves us by exposing the beauty of our vulnerability: 'Welcome to the new body / tonight we lose everything.'"—Laura Mullen

Review:

In 'Saint Erasure,' we may witness, with the leisure of true virtue, poetry's essential miracle. A little tap upon a windowpane becomes the paraclete. The curve of a cheekbone becomes eternal love, and memory an ocean. Here is a radiant palimpsest. Here is vision awash in vision itself. --Donald Revell

Donna de la Perriere's consummately crafted lines extend the argument of postmodern lyric into a space of mystery. --Andrew Joron
