This poetry bundle includes:
I Am the Big Heart by Sarah Venart
If you’re seeking poetry that speaks to the profound experiences of family, love, and self-discovery, then this is for you. Venart’s work is grounded in the universal themes of parenthood, partnership, and the quest for personal identity, making it highly accessible and relatable.
If You Discover a Fire by Shaun Robinson
This book is just full of smart, deftly executed poems with an ache at their centre: “…Like the octopus that sets loose the lid of the jar it’s been placed in, If You Discover A Fire has the imagination to outsmart the world’s relentless conditions.” — Sheryda Warrener
Short Haul Engine by Karen Solie
Karen Solie has become one of Canada’s great poets. Virtuosic right from the start: “Karen Solie’s first book of poems, Short Haul Engine – a nice phrase for poetry – stood out for its mix of physical impressions, perceptual strength, and – especially – mental grace. A kind of liveliness, agility, connectivity.” —Griffin Poetry Prize jury citation
