'Hers is a dextrous poetry of confidently conjured atmospheres and moods, at once elusive and heady with lytic invention. she has a canny way with the repeated phrase and a technical control that's impressive yet lightly worn.Parker's debut is, without doubt, a fine thing to be both celebrated and admired.'

'This is an exceptionally fresh début collection. The originality, drama and memorability of Elizabeth Parker's poems work a potent magic. Antinopolis marks the arrival of an excellent new talent.'

David Morley

Review of Antinopolis by poet Martin Malone, editor of The Interpreter's House:

'This is a debut of remarkable assurance, richly allusive and sure-footed, from a writer in command of both technique and subject. It is rare to find, this early in a poet’s development, such confidence of tone and symbolic choice. I await keenly, Parker’s first full collection.'

Review by poet Fiona Owen in literature journal Raceme:

'Elizabeth Parker opens her debut collection with the title poem 'Antinopolis', establishing immediately her imaginative powers coupled with edgy, vibrant language…'

'Life's chancy business, its transience and dangers, and the way that we are all capable of being caught at the wrong time in the wrong place, is converted beautifully in 'The Falling Man 9/11'.

'At the heart of Parker's collection lie women's relationships, with their mystery, secrets and sensuality of language'.

Review by writer Judy Darley in online literature journal SkyLightRain:

'The poems in Elizabeth Parker’s debut pamphlet Antinopolis enter your consciousness like raindrops dropping into a pond – spreading ripples that grow until they touch the edges of your being.'

'There’s an impression of dexterity in Parker’s poetry – a sense of being funnelled from scene to scene by a confident and serene guide. It gives us as readers the freedom to drink in the emotional undertones.'
