Description

THE FIRST COLLECTION of Page's poems to be published in the U.S., Cosmologies is a careful distillation of her critically acclaimed two-volume Hidden Room. Page's socially conscious work focuses on our planet and on the beauty of existence. Anchored by a masterful use of metaphor, her poems quote knowingly from Eliot, Thomas, and Robert Graves. As editor Eric Ormsby says in his foreword, this "supreme escape artist of Canadian] literature... is the shrewdest of observers ...a citizen not only of the world but of the earth.
