Over the course of a career spanning three decades, Lorna Crozier has become one of Canadaís most beloved poets, receiving high acclaim and numerous awards, including the Governor Generalís Award, the Pat Lowther Poetry Award, and the Canadian Authors Association Award. Now, in this definitive selection of poems, which draws on her eight major collections and includes many of the poems for which she is justly celebrated, Crozierís trademark investigations of family, spirituality, loveís fierce attachments, and bereavement and loss have been given a new framework. As a sapphire generates a blue light from within, The Blue Hour of the Day demonstrates Crozierís dazzling capacity to bring depths to light, unfailingly and unflinchingly. It represents the best work of an icon of Canadian poetry.
