About the Author
Read an Excerpt
The onion loves the onion.
It hugs its many layers,
saying O, O, O,
each vowel smaller than the last.
Some say it has no heart.
It doesn’t need one.
It surrounds itself,
feels whole. Primordial.
First among vegetables.
If Eve had bitten it instead of the apple,
What People are Saying About This
"What a joy to have a volume of selected poems by this marvelous Canadian poet, storyteller, truth-teller, visionary."
— Ursula K Le Guin, New York Times Book Review
“One of the most original poets alive. . . .”
— Books in Canada
“Crozier’s fans have come to expect graceful clarity, sly humour, a strong affinity for the animal world and a subversive feminist tilt to the mirror she holds up to human affairs.”
— Toronto Star
“Lorna Crozier’s The Blue Hour of the Day reads like one long autobiographical poem of astonishing coherence and beauty, and so powerful that, after I’d closed the book, I found that I’d unwittingly learnt several of the lines by heart.”
- Alberto Manguel, Times Literary Supplement Books of the Year
