A beautiful new edition of the award-winning collection from Canada's new Poet Laureate. Newfoundland-born poet John Steffler is one of this country's most accomplished writers. Recently named Canada's national poet, he is the author ofThe Grey Islands(poems) and the award-winning novelThe Afterlife of George Cartwright, both of which have become classics in our time. That Night We Were Ravenousis Steffler's most recent book of new poetry. In this extraordinary gathering of poems, he follows the trajectory of some of his earlier work with poems situated in Newfoundland's coves, on trails, and in communities that testify to the pure bite and edge of this terrain. Other poems in the later sections of the book, more intimate, are set in Southern Ontario and Greece. This is poetry that captures the imagination and activates the heart. Simply by looking through Steffler's eyes, we come away with an enlarged sense of the natural world on the one hand, and of our own humanity on the other. From the Trade Paperback edition.
