Karen Connelly's fourth collection of poetry is remarkable in its energy, courage, and resounding depth. Connelly is a poet rare in her ability to address the political from within the realm of personal experience. Moving among the haunted refugees and political dissidents on the Thai-Burmese border, retelling the stories of Greek peasants, negotiating the borders between home and exile, Connelly brings to all her poetry a passion for being fully alive, engaged with the world as both participant and witness. By turns richly metaphorical, sensual, and chilling, The Border Surrounds Us is Karen Connelly's most accomplished and vibrant book to date.
