About this title


From lyric, to narrative, to bardic, Linda McCarriston's poems continue to probe the contexts in which we experience both joy and anguish. They portray animals, children, friendships and landscapes while taking on the difficult issues of family life and gender power structures.


When political poetry succeeds, it usually does so through a broadly announced theme. McCarriston's...third collection, a rich amalgam of new work and a glorious smattering of poems from previous award-winning volumes, works in a more delicate fashion: through imagery....the merits and hazards of personal autonomy resound in poem after poem... Provocative, finely wrought poems packing thematic punch with rare imagistic beauty. - Kirkus; ""There is a clean quality to McCarriston's work that makes it seem like worked stone, as though everything unnecessary had been stripped away. Stripped and bare as they are, McCarriston's poems are also musical, with voices calling and answering to each other despite all obstacles. Despite palpable loss, this is ultimately a majestically hopeful book."" - Booklist
