The If Borderlands
Collected PoemsBook - 2017
"Elise Partridge, who was born in the United States but spent her adult years in Canada, wrote three books of poetry that were widely admired for their meticulous, glittering craft and scrupulous truth-to-life. A poet of family and friends, of nature, of the daily round, of illness, who documented an early bout with and treatment for cancer with an unsparing but stoic clarity, Partridge was, as Rosanna Warren has said, "a poet of brilliant precisions. Each line represents a new glinting angle of thought ... The result is an art of eerie compassion and an almost hyper-realist perception of the small." This new collection includes all the poems that Partridge prepared for publication during her lifetime as well as a selection of poems that were left in manuscript at the time of her death"-- Provided by publisher.
