Poetry. Women's Studies. In poems that could double as paintings, M. Travis Lane harnesses the brush strokes of language to form a bridge between the artist and natural world in A TENT, A LANTERN, AN EMPTY BOWL. This is work that sees "the reds/ that glitter in the shaggy firs,/ the yellow-mauves in shadowed snow,/ the orange-hatched pine tops quivering" and captures it all in vivid detail. A TENT, A LANTERN, AN EMPTY BOWL is a vital new collection from one of Canada's most important living poets.
