The poems in Wind and Root emerge from two powerful and sometimes contradictory forces in the poet's life: one, the rural traditions, landscapes and seascapes of his native province, and the other, a profound desire to move and see beyond those boundaries. Brent MacLaine's work displays a range of poetical responses--lyrical, tragic, dramatic, realistic, ironic, humorous--from an imagination that swings between the experiences of there and away--of wind--and the experiences of here and home--of root.
