All We Saw, Hardback Book


A mesmerising, luminously beautiful new poetry collection from Anne Michaels, internationally acclaimed poet and bestselling author of Fugitive PiecesIn this passionate, profound collection, Anne Michaels explores one of her essential concerns: `what love makes us capable of, and incapable of'.

Here is the paradox at the heart of loss, the ways in which passion must accept, must insist, that `death ... give/not only take from us'. A sea in darkness, a woman's hair shining in light, rain falling... how quiet must a voice be in order to be heard? In this way, desire is evoked with intensity and precision.

By the end, we are left with a renewed awareness of the mystery at the core of existence; we enter a space that is `not inside, not outside: / dusk's doorway,' where love remains alive.
