Description

Jane Munro’s newest collection of poetry, Active Pass, explores connections among the visual arts, yogic discipline and self-regeneration. The book opens with a suite of ghazals arising from the conflicts in mid-life, moves into poems about Mary Pratt’s paintings and closes with a reflective sequence called “Nearer Prayer than Story.” The book’s title comes from the name of a marine channel in British Columbia. Midway on its crossing from Tsawwassen to Swartz Bay, a ferry enters Active Pass, a scenic but dangerous strait where visibility is limited and currents vigourous.
