Dog Heart is the first poetry collection by award-winning writer Alison Swan. This lovely chapbook of ten linked poems immerses the reader in Swan's finely drawn images of the Great Lakes and their rugged shores where dunes disappear into woodlands.
Swan's language is precise and evocativeimages resonate and are remembered. By connecting with the poet's observations, we feel her sense of place and know those for whom it is home. Each poem was selected and arranged with others to create a whole that stays with the reader, like an album.
