"Satoru Ikeda sang Daffodil himself...accompanied by Pucci's piano dropped perfectly into the atmosphere. [Ikeda] enchanted the audience with [his] authentic, almost ritual interpretation... a sandy, dirty voice and intonation, which gave a Japanese twist to the popular Canadian English verse of Darcy Blahut." —Norberto Oldrini

"At once rustic and urbane, personal and familiar, whimsical and dense, Darcy Blahut's collection offers a textured catalogue of forms and diversions. . ."
—Robert Dornsife, Creighton University
"Blahut rarely shines too bright a light on his subject. He allows us to enjoy the play of shadows that makes feeling into meaning. . ."
"Darcy Blahut reads with a great deal of skill and thematic ambition. . . [He] has a real feel for language, its richness, its lush musics."
—Tim Lilburn, Govenor General's Award winner (2003)
