Strange Horses Reviewed

by flambardblog

Olivia Byard’s Strange Horses is extensively reviewed by Rebecca Farivar in the Spring 2012 Poetry Salzburg Review.

‘Byard links together moments in sequences of poems that together create the impression of a complete event or concept.  … Her stand-alone poems share the sequences’s effect of telling a large story through a singular moment. . . . Byard’s poems feel true and resist the pitfalls of pretentiousness.’

For the full review and other articles, as well as new poetry and translations, do order a copy of the Poetry Salzburg Review. It’s an excellent publication created by people devoted to poetry.

A must-read poem by Olivia, ‘Sisyphus’, is also included in the Review. Strange Horses is available here.
