When The World Is Not Our Home | Selected Poems 1985-2000
"When the World is Not Our Home includes nearly fifty poems by one of Canadas most distinctive literary voices. Selected from titles published between 1985 and 2000, these poems illustrate an agile poet sifting the everyday through a fine mythical screen. They reveal a woman with multiple roles, and her emergence as a highly soughtafter Canadian poet.
Known for her rebellious voice, Musgrave knots sensual with mischief, girlhood with ritual, and parental with horrific. Cacophonous imagery engages through an exquisite language and what it describes: family faltering into drug addiction, infidelity, and death.
Musgrave positions the reader in the thin membrane between self and world, and it is in this space that she provokes us with her gripping imagination."
