Overview

A new collection by Newfoundland poet Agnes Walsh, her first since the release of Going Around With Bachelors (2007). Born and brought up in Placentia, Newfoundland, Walsh studied folklore in Georgia (USA), before returning home and taking to writing works founded in her love of her ancestral place. Oderin is an homage to Walsh's mother, who signed her letters, Love from your loving mother--Mother."

She divides her time between St. John's and Patrick's Cove around the Cape Shore from Placentia. In 2006 she was named the inaugural St. John's Poet Laureate.
