“I sometimes think of Claire Bateman as an informant from another world. Her poems take me places I have never been—they let me see the everyday as transcendent. After reading Scape, I was filled with a sense of wonder and awe. Clearly, there’s nothing like the Claire Bateman experience. She is nothing short of brilliant.” —Nin Andrews

“Claire Bateman is irredeemably in love with the zaniness of imagination, as it simultaneously appreciates and creates a universe supercharged with extravagance of spirit. The drama for her reader is in seeing how Bateman’s whimsy vaults us into a thrilled and deepened sense of life’s lucky strangeness. Mischievously metaphysical, alarmingly happy despite her knowledge of ‘grief, the universal solvent,’ Bateman is our great celebrator of ‘rocking and being rocked’—a unique talent.” —Mark Halliday
