This title is unavailable to order from Caversham.

Covering and uncovering, exposure and enclosure: these are themes that permeate Maureen Hynes's new work. The collection is different in tone from Hynes's previous collections: a more hopeful and open work, delighting in the joys of mid-life love. Uncovered continues and deepens some previous themes, such as friendship, family and travel; taking stock of the dire developments in the world around us, particularly environmental ones; and coping with the human project of mortality. Hynes is asking what we can create to heal and improve and revivify our world. Hynes's poems retain a strong personal voice that integrates experience, emotion and observation, deeply rooted in daily life. In the way that all good poetry takes the time to reveal or "uncover" layers of reality often overlooked, Hynes's fine, thoughtful and deeply textured poems surprise and satisfy.

About the Author:

Maureen Hynes is a Toronto poet whose poetry collection, Rough Skin, won the League of Canadian Poets Gerald Lampert prize for best first book of poetry in 1995. Books in Canada said of her poetic skill in Rough Skin, Her range of subject matters and styles is remarkable, her selection of details, impeccable. The Canadian Book Review Annual said, A book this good makes you wonder what will come next. The promise of Rough Skin is fulfilled in Harms Way.
