NOMINATED IN 1991 FOR THE GOVERNOR GENERAL?S AWARD FOR POETRY: Rapturous Chronicles is a long prose poem in memory of novelist Juan Butler, whose tragic death cut short a promising career in Canadian writing; it affair with language, with words and ideas, with the unfashionable idea of love itself.
"Passion and linguistic virtuosity are the first words that come to mind while reading [Judith Fitzgerald's] poetry... It is moving; it is scintillating; it is pyrotechnic as it explodes both language and emotion."? Books in Canada
