Overview

In Skein of Days, Sonja Greckol fractures, repeats, alliterates, rhymes and generally plays wildly and mesmerizes the reader with glimmers of historical detail. And she tantalizes with more narrative pieces that provide firmer toeholds in the vortex of a woman's lived experience in the latter half of the C20th. The fifty-five annual poems are harvested from three distinctive lexicons: newspaper and magazine headlines and titles, poems from Governor General's Award for Poetry, hit song titles and physics articles (1946-2000). She may have invented some other pieces.
