    • Abstract:
      'Tumultuous, vibrant, tragic and over too soon.'--NewsdayHandwriting is Michael Ondaatje's first new book of poetry since The Cinnamon Peeler. The exquisite poems collected here draw on history, mythology, landscape, and personal memories to weave a rich tapestry of images that reveal the longing for--and expose the anguish over--lost loves, homes, and language, as the poet contemplates scents and gestures and evokes a time when'handwriting occurred on waves, / on leaves, the scripts of smoke'and remembers a woman's'laughter with its / intake of breath. Uhh huh.'Crafted with lyrical delicacy and seductive power, Handwriting reminds us of Michael Ondaatje's stature as one of the finest poets writing today.
