"Mez (aka Mary-Anne Breeze) ties experimental language to avatar creation and collaborative networking to explore complex and often contested political and social themes. The originality of her approach with its rich integration of the various aspects of her praxis has repercussions beyond aesthetics....Mez's precursors in print fiction include Kathy Acker [among other works, Kathy Acker's Empire of the senseless] whose surreal and terrible prose seems to have been semantically dismantled by Mez's more technologically engaged praxis. Both stretch language and genre until only thin tendrils of reference to mainstream literature remain. These thin tendrils are even more nebulous in Mez's case, since she distributes her work, and indeed, shares "ownership" of her work, in ways that exist beyond the scope of the capitalist print fiction industry."

"I only consistently read 4 Aussie poets - Jack Tranter, mez breeze, Sam Byfield [for eg] and I qualify this group as some of the greatest poetry being written today... [Australia] to me [is] a land steeped in Literature, writing English – but the break-throughs have been only recent – mez breeze’s work, fx – here’s a poet who has taken the notion of ‘communication’ in poetry to its extreme – ...she is in the midst of creating poetry anew..."
