The Garden Going On Without Us is Lorna Crozier's sixth collection of poems, and is a book of rare virtuosity. Her poetry is sensual, pragmatic, linked to the women and men about her - people who live rather than simply name their lives. She often writes about the Prairies - a vast land that bleaches human and animal bones alike, but one that contains gardens in which people and plants are cultivated, and houses which are places of love-making, warmth, and rage. Her keen ironic tone is balanced by a certain romanticism. As a lyric poet, she has a wide range of tone and style.
