All You Expect of the Road: Poems by Sue Nevill

Front Cover
Dundurn, Mar 16, 2000 - Poetry - 120 pages
0 Reviews

Sue Nevill departs with purpose from traditional verse for her second collection. Careening through utterly unique poetic territory, from urban junkets to rural backroads, her images stun the reader with the force of wind against windshield. In four sections ""Rain to Dance in at Midnight"", ""Another Way to Saskatchewan"", ""Romancing the Stone"" and ""Forest of Daughters"", Nevill moves from the interior landscape of bars and basements to the open road, celebrating the vagabond tradition that hurtles us back in time and forward through generations--at once recovering the debris of earlier journeys and charting the totems and landmarks of a brilliant and personal journey.
