Reviews

Rapidly gets deep and electric as the corded nerves running through the spinal channel.--Lightsey Darst "Bookslut"
In The Hideous Hidden, Legris performs a poetic autopsy that untethers the language of the body and its "hideous hidden" from the morgue, the medical lab, the anatomy book--spaces from which women for centuries were long excluded--and creates from the history and language of this body her own stranger thing.--Adriana X. Jacobs "Music & Literature" (9/20/2016 12:00:00 AM)
Legris isn't interested in solving the "riddle of meat," preferring instead a jangling, sound-dense poetry that ruminates on the substance of the human body...--Shane Neilson "Poetry Magazine"
Legris loves language, the way it radiates, not just for what it can say by syntactic regularity and accumulation, but for its cellular resonances.-- "Open Letter"
Her work crackles with exuberant wackiness.-- "CBC"
