Poetry. WHERE THE ARROW FALLS, first published in Canada in 1973, still stands as a triumph of personal mythmaking. We read the songs, elegies, and haunting modern pastorals of an individual negotiating realms of infinite renewal and possibility. Compassionate and empathetic in its inquiry, the story emerges, shattered and radiant—and like the teller, one begins to worry about life.
