Sleeping in Tall Grass

(Pocket)
Beskrivning:

"My emptiness will not be frenetic with the friction of my father's silences but still as the unmarked graves of his many forgotten selves" -From "Salt" A cycle of poems, Sleeping in Tall Grass takes an unsparing look at a painful, sometimes abusive, yet strangely redemptive family story enfolded within the body of the Canadian prairie itself-at once physical, historical, and metaphysical. These intensely personal poems reflect the complex relationships between sound and space, language and silence. Treating time as more layered than sequential, they reflect a process of organic composition distilled from Therrien's iterative observations and utterances. This is writing that reaches "into the very grain of existence"-a sonorous re-presentation of the human presence on the dispassionate but eternally giving plains.
