“‘Brief trees begin to elaborate’, says Catherine Vidler in ‘19 lines from Lund’. She herself is a poet who, while admiring restraint and brevity, loves even more the lyrical elaborations that the precisions of observation can produce. Somehow she has gained access to a lens which is microscope and telescope at once, and she arranges what she sees to make poems that are like her own starless night: ‘supple, fantastic, afloat’.” — Bill Manhire
Catherine Vidler is the editor of Snorkel, an online trans-Tasman literary magazine. Her poetry chapbook Cloud Theory was published by Puncher and Wattmann in 2007.
