Description

"His voice was as thick as pine resin when he began to read and as the words travelled down my spine." Mary Barnes has identified beauty in subtlety. What Fox Knew captures our gentle world in rich poems that calm and awaken. Amid landscape and truth, the quiet world we take for granted is revealed anew with tempered grace. Bringing her Ojibwe roots to the fore, the poet has constructed a first collection that settles on masterful.

Editorial Review

What the Fox Knew is a beautiful collection of poems that lead us to reflect on the essentialspaces of beauty, justice, love, home and nation. Mary Barnes is the poet whose work I've beenwaiting to read; I had no idea how much until I read these poems. These are not quick poems;they are not desperate, or rushed. Barnes' poems are, to quote her, "thick as resin" and alsogorgeously clear as amber in the light. --Juliane Okot Bitek, author of 100 Days, shortlisted for 2017 Pat Lowther Award and won the 2017 INDIEFAB Book of the Year Award for Poetry
