Why Reporting from Night? The title of this first collection refers to the surreal night flowering of memory and imagination. In these imagistic, playful poems, the sleep-deprived thought patterns of a mother of small children, the inventiveness of a child's-eye view and the restless brain at 4:00 a.m. all converge. With subtle wit, teasing sensuality and lyrical ...more

"Reporting from Night" is a group of poetry that I'll admit I have conflicted sentiments about because I definitely see a great eye and charm in Kateri Lanthier's work on the whole, but the quality of the collection is a bit inconsistent in points.

Lanthier's a Canadian poet that has a whimsical, precocious style that, when it's particularly strong, asserts itself through wonderful images, narrative structure, and plays on words. There's a running thematic in each of two sections the collection

Kateri Lanthier’s words are beautiful! The love for her family, life, and Toronto shines so bright in this book. I once wrote a poem called “Daniel Jones, Toronto’s Son” about another poet whose work was remarkable. After reading “Reporting From Night” I realized Toronto also has a daughter named Kateri Lanthier. She, along with her sisters of poetry make their city alive and breathing with words. Toronto, the city of poets!!! “Reporting From Night” is a must read for lovers of poetry!!!

There are realities that lie beneath the surface of the seen world that poetry, paintings and music can help us to make sense of. The arts can open up the way to inner healing, becoming conduits of grace. Poetry is an especially vital art form that enables people to understand the truths about themselves and the universe.

I recently read Reporting From Night two times through in one night, and was in no doubt I was in the presence of a marvelous and excellent poet. These poems are playful, wondrous, melancholy, searingly honest and brave acts of writing. (And they were often written in the middle of the night to account for the author's busy schedule as a mother of three young children.) The poems gathered in this book--Ms. Lanthier's first book of poems--are explorations both into dream time and real life, and ...more
