Poetry, a breath of Spring

Wednesday, Apr 23, 2014 at 5:30pm

Happy Poetry Month! Celebrate it with some of these recently released poetry books:

> Known for shining the light of poetic curiosity, Winnipeg's Alison Calder (winner of two Manitoba Book Awards and a finalist for both the Gerald Lampert Award and the Pat Lowther Award for Canadian poetry) explores the ways we feel our way through new experiences in her second collection, In the Tiger Park.

> Award-winning Manitoba poet Dennis Cooley takes the reader through the historical developments of the alphabet in abecedarium. Lovers of experimental poetry and those interested in linguistic play or the history of language will relish Cooley's latest collection.

> In her debut collection of poetry, Manitoba's Luann Hiebert peers at the undercurrents of family and relationships. In an age where secrecy and privacy seem to have fallen by the wayside, What Lies Behind looks at the facades we maintain in our daily lives.

> Melissa Morelli Lacroix explores the love and longing, loss and pain, grief and healing found in the music of Frederic Chopin, Clara Schumann, and Claude Debussy in A Most Beautiful Deception, a series of poetic cycles that respond to each composer's work.

> With healthy humour and a wicked sense of ownership, Not The First Thing I've Missed by Saskatoon's Fionncara MacEoin captures the debris and encumbrances when hope and doubt collide. This is MacEoin's first book of poetry.
