The poems in “Wind and Root”
emerge from two powerful and sometimes contradictory forces in the poet’s life: one, the rural traditions, landscapes and seascapes of his native province, and the other, a profound desire to move and see beyond those boundaries. Brent MacLaine’s work displays a range of poetical responses – lyrical, tragic, dramatic, realistic, ironic, humourous – from an imagination that swings between the experiences of there and away – of wind – and the experiences of here and home – of root.
The power and craft of these poems belie that this is the author’s first book.
