Praise for I said the sea was folded

‘A full, honest, brave, overflowing heart. Australia has her Emily Dickinson.’ —Kate Jennings

‘In I Said the Sea was Folded, Erik Jensen does something that is personally brave and artistically bold […] Jensen shows us why the love poem is an art form that's even more special and necessary in an atomised society.’ —The Australian

‘For Jensen, an award-winning journalist, biographer and screenwriter, these poems announce a new phase in his work. They are surprising in their lucidity and their integrity … If a quality of loveliness and intensity of emotion is regarded as being characteristic of poems, then that’s evident.’ —Rama Gaind, PS News
