Description

In Lost August, Esta Spalding builds an exquisite poetic honeycomb, bursting with rich imagery and lyrical texture. Each poem is a passage to the next; each reverberates with images and echoes of the others; each moves to the dazzling final sequence, A Yellow Dress. Here is a lush world, freighted with loss, where the reader rides into absence, province of the heart.

Two poems in the collection have been recognized with national awards: Bee Verse won the National Poetry Contest in 1998 and Aperture won the Malahat Long Poem Contest in 1995.
