Reviews
"There's a way through which Barwin's surrealism and play with puns and banter display, most of all, a deep empathy and engagement with others, something always present in his work, but somehow more forefront through the poems in this particular collection. And perhaps that, by itself, is the difference here: Barwin wearing his heart so openly, while still allowing language and play to swirl around that particular centre." -- rob mclennan's blog
"[Gary Barwin's] latest delightful effusion of verse The Most Charming Creatures only adds to the accomplishment of his selected, For It Is a Pleasure and a Surprise to Breathe from 2019." -- WordCityLit blog
"Barwin's words are bright and vivacious as he delights in modes of creation, the impetus triggering each poem often laid bare or explicitly referenced." -- Vallum Magazine
