'Of Travelling Alone Together: Three journey across the Nullarbor and time are interwoven and Lenore explores our myths. when we arrive no whales are visible/that’s nature says Claire/you can’t make whales appear. This poet/traveller is incredibly modest and respectful of what is given her to experience. She travels across her many landscapes naming without appropriating.'Alison Clark
'Of Ruby Camp: ‘Crisp’s insights and perceptions are so original and intense that she needed to find a new language, precise and sensuous, mysterious and revealing, held in a fine balance of rhythm and phrasing. She creates a radically new way of ‘knowing’ the East Gippsland bush: strong as illusion the dream works/its way into landscape. It is finally a book about joy.’Marie Tulip
‘These poems [Lenore’s] are multi-layered but never dense or affected, the language being so intelligible and precise … [Crisp] has a flair for devising moments of heightened poetics that produce an originality via extreme simplicity.’Pam Brown, Overland
