Canal is Saskia Hamilton’s first volume of poetry to be published in the UK, and contains work from two collections previously published in America – As for Dream (2001) and Divide These (2005) – as well as new work.

Spare, evocative, luminous, her poems register things at the edge of our attentions, “the ambit where dream, memory,
imagination and longing pass into and through one another.”

Kirkus Review

“Saskia Hamilton is not a quiet poet, just an extremely subtle and fierce one. There is a quality of spiritual stubbornness and astonishing resilience that courses through
even her briefest utterances.”

Jorie Graham

“Hamilton is able to sustain a complex narrative through stripped-down poems… leavened by a wry humor.”
The New York Times Book Review
