Maisonneuve Reviews Rhea Tregebov
"All Souls' (Signal Editions), Rhea Tregebov's seventh collection of poetry, unwraps the banal, beautiful experiences of a uniquely Canadian life. The lines are delicate but visceral: 'Soon / it will rain, soon wind will spread / the prairie dust, moths will give up / their lives against the glass,' Tregebov writes in 'House Work.' Tregebov's poems are thoughtful and confident, but never overreach. Her use of language is effortless, allowing the book to contemplate—sometimes quietly, sometimes more forcefully—the way in which small moments speak to a larger human consciousness." Taylor Tower, Maisonneuve, Issue 45.
