Haunting Winnipeg: St. Boniface Elegies by Catherine Hunter

After being knocked out by Catherine Hunter’s astonishing novel After Light, I was craving her new collection of poetry, and there is no doubt that St. Boniface Elegies shows the poet at the height of her powers. These poems tease out the shape of doubt in contemporary life, with lyrical leaps onto the comet-trails of questions about love, death, and memory.
