Overview

This collection vaults from the provocative – a deeply personal exposé of two lovers and their collisions and triumphs – into a high-voltage gallery depicting heroes and artists, scientists and politicians, mothers and their conflicted daughters. As the settings shift between the poet’s homage to her home city of Montreal (“Sinville”) to a near-drowning on a lake by a maximum security prison in New York State (“Cobalt”) or calamities in the Andes of northern Argentina (“Argent”), Cora Siré draws on a colourful palette of form, lyric and metaphor to continue her exploration of identity, displacement and the cosmic powers of love and art.
