“One can agree with Curran up to a point when she says, ‘Lyrics must have music to communicate. Poems must have a page.’ Yet as someone who reads roughly a hundred new books of poetry every year and who has ingested much moribund verse in the name of historical scholarship, I can say without exaggeration that Curran’s lyrics on the page are as successful as 75 percent of all that stuff in print.” – Andrew Dubois, University of Toronto Quarterly 88.3
