106. R’s Boat (Lisa Robertson)

Robertson may be the greatest Canadian poet working today. The incantatory rhythm of her sentences here, their patterns and repetitions, is intoxictating and hypnotic. Her more concrete, visual lines impress much more than her more abstract, essayistic moments, but in general she marries these well: “The sun glitters on the top of the sycamore while the lower branches deepen to blue. / The sky is the organ of sentiment” (61).
