Light and air, greenery and earth take on unaccustomed qualities in the poet's deft hand in this long poem from Lisa Robertson. Seven sections ? "Sunday" to "Saturday," alternating prose and verse, repattern quotidian conversations and atmospheres: "bright and fresh," "brisk and west," "streaky and massed," January to December. A constellation of radical women is invoked to pass, elegiac, among clouds: Violette Leduc, Patty Hearst, Mary Wollstonecraft, Olympe de Gouges, Shulamith Firestone, Ti?grace Atkinson. This is exhilarating poetry, wild and trouble, that seamlessly integrated lived experience with the play in mind. It is sure to entrance.The Weather won the 2002 Relit Award for Poetry.
Lisa Robertson is the author of Debbie: An Epic and Xeclogue.
