A thoughtful collection from an award-winning poet.
For the past twenty-five years, Robert Hilles has written lyric and prose poems exploring the depths of everyday life. His poetry also travels the Canadian landscapes of Northwestern Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia, as well as abroad to Japan, Europe and the United States. His fifteenth book, and twelfth book of poetry, continues his fascination with the complexities of daily life.
This new title features a major selection of poems from his previous eleven books of poetry, as well a generous number of new poems. For the first time in one volume, readers may enjoy the best poems spanning his career to date. These poems are at times philosophical, tender, and sensual. His poetry always strives to find the light in the darkest of subjects. Although his poetry is candid and does not shy away from difficult subjects, it always maintains a promise of hope and a sense of healing.
