Ossuaries

(2010)
A collection of poems by

 
A new collection from one of Canada's most renowned, honoured, and bestselling poets.

Dionne Brand's mesmerizing new collection of poems is about human zoos in the contemporary world, about the bones of fading cultures and ideas, about putting these bones away even as Brand examines their textures of powder and stone, their resilience. There are multiple strands in Ossuaries - the narrative of a woman fleeing, the sorting of the bones, the museums of spectacle that the poet visits collecting them, and the search for their final place - and always the political urgency and incantatory lyric intensity for which Brand is justly celebrated.
