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.
Praise for M. Travis Lane:
Travis Lane is a poet who should be nearer to our hearts because of how we live and how we should live. Readers of poetry–people!–operate according to the principles she articulates in her work.–Shane Neilson, Margin of Interest
