"Nina Reljić's poems approach perfection more closely than any young poet— any poet of any age, really—has any right to expect. They both twist away from the reader's expectations at every turn, and remain sonically inevitable. I recall them when I want to feel hopeful about the future of poetry. Agnes heralds a significant new talent."
—Shane McCrae, author of Cain Named the Animal
"The poems in Agnes are poems of want, of displacement, and of the search for an embodied self the speaker might comfortably inhabit. These poems grabbed me immediately with their wonder and delight in the world, and then held me rapt with their acute, yet surreal longing anyone could recognize as familiar in the 21st century."
—Lynn Melnick, author of I've Had to Think Up a Way to Survive: On Trauma, Persistence, and Dolly Parton
