Martine Audet’s imagery is never shocking; images are used to dig deeper into the confines of an ever-blossoming intuition.
~ David Cantin, Le Devoir

Martine Audet’s poem speaks low; she manages parcimously poetic strategies, and anchors her work on the shores of classical soundness…
~ Bertrand Laverdure, Moebius

Martine Audet writes about the fragile equilibrium of our lives, and about the ferment inside each one of us, the flashes and emergencies that make up living.
~ Geneviève Toussaint, Québec français
