Overview

This Side of Light is Carolyn Marie Souaid's ninth book of poetry. Selected and introduced by Governor General award-winning poet Arleen Pare, this timely volume celebrates the evolution and scope of Souaid's work over a 25-year period--from the early titles focused on human connectedness and the difficult bridging of worlds, to more recent ones exploring themes of aging, loss, letting go, and the vulnerability of life. Praised for her bold experiments with the long poem, Souaid is known for her evocative imagery, "surprising lyric twists" (Event) and "sudden illuminations on the rim of our consciousness" (Rover Montreal), and has been described by P. K. Page as having a "dark and powerful voice. "
