Karen Enns

August 07th, 2023

In her fourth poetry collection, Dislocations (Univ. of Regina Press $19.95), Karen Enns’ verses are a lyrical journey through the seasons and the weather—all the while observing human and “otherly” things in nature such as stars, roses, deer, fire, grass, gulls, and light and darkness. There’s deep investigation into the symbolism of words particularly in the book section that outlines ten “dislocations,” the eighth of which reads: “To imagine a colour no one has seen. / And then / white anemones among the cedar.” 9780889779303
