Marked by reflectiveness and mature insight, O'Meara's keen sense of lyric structure and subtle cadences explore in contexts both historical and personal the tension between established knowledge and discovery - the centre and horizon of our unfixed selves. These poems - ambitious, rooted, exuberant and controlled, informed by a certain restlessness - unfold in evocative tones of voice to propel a narrative at one intelligent and charismatic, far-ranging yet focussed. A remarkable debut.
David O'Meara is a writer living in Montreal.

From Our Editors

With a fine sense of lyric structure and subtle rhythm, David O’Meara explores the tension between secured knowledge and discovery in personal and historical contexts. Characterized by seasoned insight and meditativeness, Storm Still is a debut collection of poems restless and intelligent, ambitious and grounded, passionate yet controlled, sweeping yet centered.

Editorial Reviews

"The variety of forms and modes - narrative, lyrical, sequence, free verse, sonnet and so on - and the echoes of such mentors as Crane, Rilke, Heaney and Romantic poets generally, are a sure sign of a growing talent."
