Reviews

"Through these lyrically precise, formally adept poems, Katharine Whitcomb journeys and earns a singular vision, where a cypher becomes a threshold to discovery, and any truly lived moment uncovers an unforgettable world." -Arthur Sze


"In Habitats, Katharine Whitcomb gives voice to a human consciousness that feels the world with profound intensity, and then transforms that feeling into rigorous, heightened language. . . . A moving, memorable, important book from a poet at the height of her powers." -Mark Wunderlich


"Habitats is a brave and perceptive book, walking the reader through the personal that is also collective. . . . A book of rooms-poems-as big as all life." -Jesse Lee Kercheval
