Works about this Work

Samuel Wagan Watson : Monster's Ink Phillip Hall , 2017 single work essay
— Appears in: Rabbit , no. 21 2017; (p. 134-140)

'Monster's Ink is, predominantly, a collection of prose poetry where the message is delivered in a powerfully direct and lyrically interrogative voice...' (Introduction)

Dave Drayton Reviews Zoe Dzunko and Sam Wagan Watson Dave Drayton , 2017 single work essay review
— Appears in: Cordite Poetry Review , 1 February no. 57 2017;

'Since the late 1970s Warren Motte, Professor of French and Comparative Literature at the University of Colorado, has been collecting mirror scenes in literature, a studiously archived assembly of ‘moments when a subject glimpses himself or herself in the mirror.’ From an analysis of these more than 10,000 scenes collated in Mirror Gazing (Dalkey Archive Press, 2014) Motte suggests that in such instances ‘a curious effect of dissociation seems to be at work, for the face in the mirror typically presents itself to the subject with its otherness prominently on display’; the reflection becomes ‘the deforming mirror of another’s gaze.’' (Introduction)
