The poet and philosopher John Koethe, in his citation for Arvio’s Boston Review prize, said this: “The idea of the distinctive poetic voice…seems central to Sarah Arvio’s poetry, which sounds like no one else’s. Yet the voice in her poems seems to emanate from a kind of psychic doppelganger, originating from an imagined self somewhere outside her and passing through her on the way to the reader. It writes the self from which it issues, rather than the other way around, and is constructed out of wordplay and verbal associations… The results are poems that possess both an eerie psychological presence and a blunt verbal materiality.�
