In the Clear

ISBN: 978-1-895449-84-7

In the Clear showcases contemporary Canadian poetry that is accessible and wide-ranging in content and perspective. These poems reflect the geographical, ecological and social concerns of contemporary life and times in Canada, and many have a literary permanence because of their unique voice and exceptional craft. Readers who want a collection of poetry that is expansive in its human and social concerns will find this anthology indispensible.

"In the Clear is a testimony to the work and accomplishment of the people behind Thistledown Press."
