Beschreibung"Slovenly Love is Meira Cook's third book of poetry. "A Fine Grammar of Bones and "Toward a Catalogue of Falling, both collections of lyrics, are now joined by a fascinating long poem composed of five sequences. "A Year of Birds" sensuously explores erosion of self in the gain of new life in motherhood; "Blue Lines" concerns a woman and her double, the imperishable self she "left" to become the self she is; "Trawling: a biography of the river" introduces Heraclitus into the Winnipeg Flood of 1997, the Red River becoming a river of the mind; "Kiss by the Hotel de Ville," an extended meditation on varieties of dislocation between art and reality, focuses on Robert Doisneau's famous photograph of the same title; "Tempestuous" is a passionate, Miranda-centred reading of Shakespeare's "The Tempest. Each sequence is distinct, but together they explore a life of gap, fragment, flux. "Ah swift-winged youth," says a voice in "Trawling," "the world is, was, and ever will be full of wonder." "Slovenly Love, in its exhilarating renovation of words and forms, gorgeously confirms that.
