Summary expansion
  • Collection of 35 of Lorna Crozier?s best poems, selected and introduced by Catherine Hunter who discusses Crozier?s major themes including her feminist approach to Biblical myth. Afterword by Lorna Crozier
  • Lorna Crozier's radical imagination, and the finely tuned emotional intelligence that is revealed in the clarity of her poetry, have made her one of Canada's most popular poets. Before the First Word: The Poetry of Lorna Crozier is a collection of thirty-five of her best poems, selected and introduced by Catherine Hunter, and includes an afterword by Crozier herself. Representing her work from 1985 to 2002, the collection reveals the wide range of Lorna Crozier's voice in its most lyrical, contemplative, ironic, and witty moments. Hunter's introduction discusses the poet's major themes, with particular attention to her feminist approach to biblical myth and her fascination with absence and silence as sites for imaginative revision. Crozier's afterword, "See How Many Ends This Stick Has: A Reflection on Poetry," is a lyrical meditation that provides an inspirational glimpse into the philosophy of a writer who prizes the intensity of awareness that poetry demands, and is tantalized by "what predates speaking" and "all that can't be named." An engaging volume that will appeal to undergraduate students as well as general readers of poetry
