Overview

Written by an award-winning author, this poetry collection portrays the relentless force of water as its waves rumble and pulsate through the streets of a small, fearful village. The landscape becomes desolate, the people vanish without a trace, and darkness filled with the unknown covers the streets. The poems in "Crac" depict supernatural vision, quiet fear, utter fantasies, mysterious haunting, and a sense of metaphysical wonder - all with fascinating surrealism. This poetry collection takes the readers on a fascinating journey through the wonders of poetry filled with unexpected events, revelatory adventures, and perplexing enigmas. With his intricate and distinctive poetic style, Paul Savoie successfully expresses his creative talent and explores a wide range of human feelings, doubts, and perceptions, inviting us into the world of mystery, fantasy, and suspense. The French-language edition of this book won the 2007 Trillium Award for Literature in the French language.
