• AVISON, Margaret: Concrete and Wild Carrot
AVISON, Margaret: Concrete and Wild Carrot. London: Brick Books, 2002. Fourth Edition. 221x152mm. Trade Paperback. New. 74pp. In Margaret Avison's new poems, little pleasures are bound up with larger ones. Her slightest subjects - beloved Toronto parks with their population of oaks, firs, squirrels, dogs, kids, even ants, and the minutest sighs of her contemporary urban soundscape - all have their being within an immense composition that calls and hauls us to a largeness, a category-breaking "always unthinkable" beyond. Winner of the 2003 Griffin Poetry Prize and of the 2003 CAA Jack Chalmers Poetry Award and Globe 100 book for 2003.

"...Margaret Avison is a national treasure. For many decades she has forged a way to write, against the grain, some of the most humane, sweet and profound poetry of our time."
&ndash from the Griffin Poetry Prize Judges' Citation 2003
