Description

Dorothy Livesay Award for Poetry in 2010. Miranda Pearson's latest collection of poetry, Harbour, looks at ways humans are driven to construct territory in whatever space is available, however borrowed or makeshift. In the first section, "Asylum," Pearson turns, for the first time in her writing, to her experience of working in psychiatry. In the final section, "This Liminal Home," lovers hastily improvise make-believe homes in hotel rooms, temporary harbours that provide a fleeting freedom within their anonymous settings.
