Vidler’s beautifully oblique, diagrammatic pieces remind us that poetry has always been a numbers game. Lost Sonne
ts 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
"78 Composite Lost Sonnets is a subtle sensory bombardment, a trigonometric trance track, visual poetry in a fugue state."
