[Poems en Route] brings forth in the reader this singular excitement of watching a masterwork emerge to take its place in our country’s literature.
Ophelia Alcantara Dimalanta
With Poems en Route, Marne Kilates steers us progressively from plane to leverage—through toponyms and name drops, via proems and paeans to place and portage—with the delightful diligence of a chronicler.
A dangerous poet because his poems subvert our mannered visions of ourselves.
[Intro to Children of the Snarl]
Alfredo Navarro Salanga
If one counts by one’s digits the poetry books Marne Kilates has crafted through the years, Lyrical Objects would complete the first handful, and would represent the poet’s… digitus primus….
Marne's closest rival in poetry is only himself.
Gémino H. Abad
A solid gold poet with a 21-jewel movement.
