One of poetry’s tasks is to encounter pain. Not to resolve it, not even to console it. But to encounter it with a language that will let it be known, and in this knowing some transformation, however small, may happen. The poems in Remorseless Loyalty bristle with such hard-won transformations.

Gelineau writes with skill and passion about mortality in its several forms . . . These are mature, coherent poems full of energy and underscored with love.

Christine Gelineau has what I think of as sinew in her writing. This is work with depth to it yet she has a delightful sense of the absurd which sometimes sparks through the serious themes she addresses.
