Maisonneuve Review of All Souls’

by Taylor Tower

Fall 2012, Issue 45

All Souls’ (Signal Editions), Rhea Tregebov’s seventh collection of poetry, unwraps the banal, beautiful experiences of a uniquely Canadian life. The lines are delicate but visceral: ‘Soon / it will rain, soon wind will spread / the prairie dust, moths will give up / their lives against the glass,’ Tregebov writes in ‘House Work.’ Tregebov’s poems are thoughtful and confident, but never overreach. Her use of language is effortless, allowing the book to contemplate — sometimes quietly, sometimes more forcefully—the way in which small moments speak to a larger human consciousness.”
