On Purpose

Author(s): Nick Laird

Poetry | No Category

Blending tones of assurance and delicacy, of confidence and vulnerability, "On Purpose" is a collection of poems that takes care and consideration in examining the often brutal arena of human relations. Informed both by a sense of wit and by an undercurrent of melancholy, and frequently pivoting around familial relations, the volume concludes with a mercurial and affecting sequence about a marriage, which takes as its point of departure that most influential of military treatise, The Art of War.
