About this title


In Skein of Days, Sonja Greckol fractures, repeats, alliterates, rhymes and generally plays wildly and mesmerizes the reader with glimmers of historical detail. And she tantalizes with more narrative pieces that provide firmer toeholds in the vortex of a woman's lived experience in the latter half of the C20th. The fifty-five annual poems are harvested from three distinctive lexicons: newspaper and magazine headlines and titles, poems from Governor General's Award for Poetry, hit song titles and physics articles (1946-2000). She may have invented some other pieces.

About the Author:

SONJA GRECKOL began to write poetry when Mike Harris was re-elected in Ontario. Since, her work has appeared in Literary Review of Canada, Canadian Literature, Dalhousie Review, CV2, Canadian Women's Studies, Fiddlehead and Matrix. She coordinates poetry for Women and Environments International Magazine and has served as the Associate Rep representative on the National Council of the League of Canadian Poets (2006-08). She has taught college and university, studied order and disorder in jokes, done human rights and gender-based research and consulting, and does local activism while she writes. Her long poem, 'Emilie Explains Newton to Voltaire,' was short-listed for the CBC Poetry Prize in 2008.
