Sick for the language nan speaks, Robin Durnfords poems pursue the dervish verbs of a torquey local idiom, their punchy rhythms and visceral imagery invoking a sort of barbaric yawp for Newfoundlands south coast. Whether shes writing of childbirth, family lore or teenage shenanigans, her work is rooted, her tongue still twists / in the deserted weeds of barren banks / for recitations, caribou, heroic deeds, and blessd / fishing coast I cannot leave.
