Additional Notes

From The Publisher*In The Long Walk, Jan Zwicky bears witness to environmental and cultural cataclysm. Both prophetic and acutely personal, these poems extend her previous meditations on colonial barbarism and ecocide, on spiritual catastrophe and transformation. The voice now penetrates the steepest darknesses; it possesses extraordinary reach and density. Zwicky is one of North America's finest poets and in this book she gives us her most profound work to date.

From The Publisher*Poet and philosopher Jan Zwicky bears passionate witness to the leading edge of environmental cataclysm.
Review Quote*"The Long Walk carries a lifetime's force of meaning. A deeply beautiful book." Anne Michaels
