Advance Praise for Cardinal in the Eastern White Cedar:
“Here are poems that hold the reader in a deep conversation that excites and calms in turn. . . . Through form, Borson explores what it means to be alive and mortal in the natural world with its ever-present human influences.”— Canadian Poetry Review
“Many poets write of mortality, evanescence and the passage of time. But in her 14th collection, Toronto’s Roo Borson, a previous winner of the Griffin Poetry Prize and the Governor General’s Award, offers fresh, profound and piercingly affecting reflections on those familiar themes.”
Praise for Roo Borson's Poetry:
• "In poetry, few things matter so much as a hungry eye, a fresh way of responding to the world . . . Roo Borson is a true original." -- Maclean's
• "Roo Borson invites us to embark on a meditative, imaginative and spiritual journey. This book has a profound inner life. It is resonant and whole, moving with quiet, apparently easy steps into the depth of human experience." -- Jury citation, Governor General's Award
• "This is the work of a poet writing at the height of her powers. It is a poetic journal of mortality, . . . of entering middle age, and of journeying through landscape, seasons, plants, pasts, to find it again. The book is a small perfection in its construction, moving deftly through seasons and forms . . ." -- Jury citation, Griffin Poetry Prize
