Observing the Moon

Hagios Press, November 2015. 96 pp. ISBN 978-1-9267103-5-8

Observing the Moon CoverSneha Madhavan-Reese’s imagery is lyric, potent, and painterly, probing the darkness of a sometimes paradoxical world. Perhaps the most moving work in the book shares the journey of a new mother and her reconnection with a changed world. These poems of family and generational memory are incisive, mature, confident, and savvy in their awareness of the multiple contradictions of cultural desire. Madhavan-Reese is an exciting new voice in Canadian poetry.

Finalist, 2013 Alfred G. Bailey Prize

“…clever, brazen and playful… There’s a peacefulness within this collection that makes it very accessible and highly enjoyable.” Kerri Cull, judge

Variations in Gravity Cover

There is much in Sneha Madhavan-Reese’s Variations in Gravity that captivates: the precision of her intellect, the range of her subject material, the care with which she uses language, but perhaps above all else, her compassion, something we’d all like to see more of in the world.
