A Book of GlosasBook - 1994
The glosa is an early Renaissance form, first developed by the poets of the Spanish court. In Hologram, celebrated poet P.K. Page offers us fourteen of these elegant, intricate poems, each a homage to another poet. It is a stunning volume, of great range, depth, and technical mastery: a tribute not only to the writers represented in its pages, but also to the unsung art of reading, to which all who love literature, writer and non-writer alike, are apprenticed. Above all, it is a tribute to life, and to the life of the planet which, more delicately than we had imagined, sustains us.
"Hologram is the sophisticated work of a seasoned poet whose mind soars, at times leaving the reader scrambling. But Page is and always has been more than a poet's poet, and in the end it's her reverence for ordinary things that makes poems like 'Planet Earth' sing, giving them universal appeal." -- Carol Bruneau, Quill & Quire
