Description

This is the latest collection from award-winning poet Patrick Lane -- it is filled with poems that explore the darker side of human consciousness and desire. A man kills his own six-year-old child in 'Weeds'. An addict strives to keep ahead of death in 'Smack'. But amid this bleak landscape of pity and regret, there is also redemption and hope, life and beauty - in the wisteria seed that 'shines between the folded legs of the pod, demure, waiting for spring...', in the polished silver bowl of a spoon, or in the 'blue flare' of an 'old blacksmith tempering iron in dust and fire'. And the poet's presence is everywhere as he seeks to find meaning in this existence.

Author Biography

Patrick Lane, considered by most writers and critics to be one of Canada's finest poets, was born in 1939 in Nelson, BC. He grew up in the Okanagan region of the BC interior, primarily in Vernon. He came to Vancouver and co-founded a small press, Very Stone House with Bill Bissett and Seymour Mayne. He then drifted extensively throughout North and South America. He has worked at a variety of jobs from labourer to industrial accountant, but much of his life has been spent as a poet, having produced twenty-four books of poetry to date. He is also the father of five children and grandfather of five. He has won nearly every literary prize in Canada, from the Governor General's Award to the Canadian Authors Association Award to the Dorothy Livesay Prize. His poetry and fiction have been widely anthologised and have been translated into many languages. Lane now makes his home in Victoria, BC, with his companion, the poet Lorna Crozier.
