A Tent, A Lantern, An Empty Bowl
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 Bowlis a vital new collection from one of Canada’s most important living poets.
