From poems set in the eastern Mediterranean, with its abiding reverberations of the ancient Greek world, and informed by sacred sites and classical stories, to a series of sonnet responses to the Gospel story of Lazarus, to a lyric-narrative engagement with the mythic-erotic drama of the Biblical Song of Songs, to intensely personal poems that explore love and loss, this collection highlights the mystery of the interplay between inner and outer energies at the core of human experience.

Russell Thornton’s previous books are The Fifth Window, A Tunisian Notebook, House Built of Rain (shortlisted for the BC Book Prize and the ReLit Award), The Human Shore, and Birds, Metals, Stones & Rain (shortlisted for the 2013 Governor General’s Award for poetry). Thornton won the League of Canadian Poets National Contest in 2000 and The Fiddlehead magazine’s Ralph Gustafson Prize in 2009. He lives in North Vancouver, B.C.
