The pivotal figure of Quebec literature and publishing since the fifties, Gaston Miron in this collection first published in 1975 confirmed his reputation as one of the most important Quebecois poets. For Miron, the role of language in poetry is essential and he is primarily concerned with the relation between language, culture, and history. He sees himself as an 'anthropoet,' a gatherer and harvester of words, and at the crux of his poetry is the assertion that we are who we are because of our language. -- Dennis Egan

"The wind breathes its last in a mass of shadows/ the stars are buzzing in their blaze of bees/ and the air is soft as a squirrel's passing/ and even if the world besieges our solitudes/ you are beautiful and beautiful as a crafty fox"
