Earth's Crude Gravities

A new work by one of Canada's acclaimed poets.

Book Description

Longlisted for the 2008 ReLit Award for Poetry

Earth's Crude Gravities is both a meditation and an argument, a compelling series of poems on the world of matter and the world of spirit. Acclaimed poet Patrick Friesen muses on the religion that has been such a key part of his own background—but he also raises uncertainties.

Whether he is discussing his love of the material world or the fictional creation of a narrative in religion, Friesen’s poetry is elegant, eloquent and imagistic.
