lost sonnets.

3rd iteration
Catherine Vidler
Mit einem Nachwort (engl.) der Autorin
Catherine Vidler’s visual poems are experiments in symmetry, images flipped, repeated, fragmented, and transformed, liberated from their mimetic source contexts and re-presented as frenetic harmonies of shape and movement.
Ken Hunt

Vidler’s beautifully oblique, diagrammatic pieces remind us that poetry has always been a numbers game. Lost Sonnets is like walking through a forest of winter trees on a clear, moonless night. Up above there are no clouds, only comets and constellations.
Tom Jenks

Lost Sonnets confidently places Vidler’s writing next to Shakespearean, Petrarchan and Spenserian forms; here metrics and rhyme look beyond language into a visual form ranging across the map of potentiality. Soon we will all be writing Vidlerian sonnets.
Derek Beaulieu
