about this item

In Cloud Physics, her third collection, Karen Enns ranges over endings of many kinds: cultural, ecological, and personal. But the poems are also replete with affirmations of love, of music and language, and of our rootedness in place and history. Enns describes our predicament with startling and surreal precision, yet also with tenderness and compassion. Her work is unusually wise in the ways of innocence as well as grief.The title poem establishes the sense of fragmentation and loss that permeates the collection. The book arcs between it and the extraordinary sequence, “Twelve Months.” Written in the imagined voice of her recently deceased father, the sequence is Rilkean in its scope and texture, a profound meditation on the interpenetration of death and life.
