In Mary Cameron's debut poetry collection she deftly redefines the relationship between visual art and the viewer's heart.

Mary Cameron is a former editor of both Quarry Magazine and Prism international, and has been published in The Fiddlehead, The Malahat Review, Arc, The New Quarterly, Poetry Canada, Dandelion, Grain, Prairie Fire and other literary journals.

From Our Editors

Clouds Without Heaven, the debut poetry collection by Mary Cameron, deftly redefines the relationship between visual art and the heart of the viewer. With staccato stanzas, Cameron explores the multiple interpretations each image evokes, crafting condensed verse that stresses the meter of her language above its narrative. Adopting the role of curator, Cameron brings form to each of the book's four "galleries": "Madame Cezanne," "Landscapes," "Portraits" and "Lovers."
