[UCP Books]: The Poet's Freedom
“Scholarly yet maverick, patiently constructed yet risk-taking, her work constantly surprises. . . . Whether she’s undoing and reconfiguring Virgil’s Georgics or Chaucer’s dream poetry, or exploring the language of children’s games, [Stewart] engages her subjects with vitality and freshness.”
John Kinsella, The Guardian
