Dear Hermes..., Paperback Book

Dear Hermes... Paperback

Part of the Robert Kroetsch Series series


By turns joyous and adventurous, melancholy and nostalgic, Michelle Smith's debut collection of poems showcases a wide-ranging fascination with places, people, and story.

Smith's limpid and humane handling of an array of themes, emotions, and styles-her Norwegian ancestry, her Canadian Prairie heritage, the significance of family, the fragility of memory, world travel, ekphrasis, myth, and more-exemplifies the lyric self on a poetic grand tour, or pilgrimage, to meet the world.

Framed by imaginative travelogues addressed to Greek gods, dear Hermes...offers readers an escape and an entrance-out of time and into the poet's luminous experience.

Readers who appreciate clear lyric and fleet voicing will relish Smith's poetry.
