Nicole Brossard's fiction and poetry have been lauded as equal parts experimental and sensual, and Museum of Bone and Water continues this tradition. Drawing from Virginia Woolf and Jorge Luis Borges, this collection of poems investigates intimate bodily realms to probe questions of who we are and what we desire. Positing the body as a museum, the poems illuminate the human condition by way of fingers, lips, and organs, finding meaning in them as one might a painting. With writing that is lyrical yet grounded in reality, Brossard's poems have the capacity to speed the breath and quicken the heart, and make for a luxurious reminder that poetry can be as much a physical pleasure as a spiritual one.
