Anthem by Helen Humphreys
Digital Download- PDF or EPUB
Physical and fiercely lyric, Helen Humphreys’ Anthem is a litany of want. A song of poverty and of desire, of the reach forward and the relentless backward glance. With stark images and subtle, tensile strength, her poems touch that rare interval between presence and absence, echo and answer, between wall and window and sky – that gap in which we live, the space words make.
Helen Humphreys is the author of four books of poetry, six novels, and two works of creative non-fiction. She was born in Kingston-on-Thames, England, and now lives in Kingston, Ontario.
Her collections of poetry include Gods and Other Mortals (1986); Nuns Looking Anxious, Listening to Radios (1990); and, The Perils of Geography (1995).

Her most recent work of non-fiction is Nocturne (2013), a memoir about the life and death of her brother, Martin.
