...from Michael Higgins in The Toronto Star, April 27, 2002

“With this book of essays, he [Porter] conducts a mystical, exhilarating probe into the very nature of language, its horizons and its connections with the spirit. He explores the immense possibilities inherent in the very power and creativity of the word.”

“Porter is fascinated by the word-signatures or spirit-marks that can be discovered in every writer or imaginative artist. For the author himself, the signature is ‘Spiritbookword’ or ‘the breath of the word in the book.’”

“This is an eloquent manifesto, heroic and countercultural, one that celebrates the spirit and its relationship with the word. It is a declaration of faith in the redemptive qualities of the imagination.”
