In her twelfth collection, Lorna Crozier offers us startlingly original and profoundly humane revisionings of familiar Biblical figures and events. Her purpose is anything but sectarian, though these are poems rooted in elemental truths of land, light, and the human heart. The compassion and psychological insight that have made her one of Canada's most beloved poets are here in force, shot through with wit and intelligence, rendered in a lithe, tensile line. This is vintage Crozier: tales of beginning and of ending, sharp, sweet, heretical, and deeply true. The remarkable closing sequence, "Book of Praise," was commissioned for broadcast by the CBC, and aired to public acclaim in the spring of 2000.
