Product Description


"Bolster has a quiet confidence ... Her pacing is exquisite, engaging readers with apparent simplicity that turns into brilliant complexity at the flick of a line."--Candace Fertile, The Maple Tree Literary Supplement

"This is a book which, under the guise of looking at man's confining attitude toward the natural world, meditates profoundly on the contemporary condition. It is further confirmation of Stephanie Bolster's status as one of Canada's finest young poets."--Ian Pople, Manchester Review

" ... A searching, hungry, and agile mind hurrying over the full range of her research and experience, the full breadth of her various passions."--Nick Thran, Quill and Quire

"The poems read like small essays. And the finest end so wonderfully, just before they end ... "--rob mclennan

Edifying Enjoyment Nov. 7 2011
By Tom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This new book upholds the standard of poetic significance established in her pervious works. I'm biased, and "White Stone - The Alice Poems" is still my favorite, but "Life on Earth" is wonderful, also. She surprises and delights the imagination. When I have to resort to research to keep up with her, I learn things I needed to know, and that new knowledge makes each re-reading more enjoyable. You don't have to know what ekphrastic poetry is, but she wields it like a Vorpal Sword.
