What happens when, in mid-life, a marriage breaks apart and a woman’s home empties of its familiar rituals, and energy patterns, and grids of faith and promise? The poems in Ronna Bloom’s fourth collection, Permiso, follow an ancient trajectory, of psychic displacement, of questions having to do with personal failure, of responsibility, yes, and of an emerging, craning desire, of a search, begun anew, for an Other who just might be Self. Previous books, with dates and publishers: • Public Works – Pedlar 2004, shortlisted for the Pat Lowther Award• Personal Effects – Pedlar 2000• Fear of the Ride – Carleton University Press, 1996, shortlisted for the Gerald Lampert Award
