Pigeon : poems by Karen Solie( Book )
7 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 123 libraries worldwide
Launched to prominence with her first collection of poems, Karen Solie continued her upward trajectory with Modern and Normal. Now, with Pigeon, this singer of existential bewilderment takes another step forward. She finds an analog for the divine in a massive, new model tractor and an analogue for the malign in the face of the New York Yankees' Alex Rodriguez. Her poems are X-rays of delusions and mistaken perceptions, intellectual explorations of bad luck, creeping catastrophe, and the eros of danger come dressed to kill. Her ear is impeccable and her syntax the key to a rare, razor-sharp po
Short haul engine by Karen Solie( Book )
6 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 107 libraries worldwide
Short Haul Engine is a tough-minded, original, unyielding first collection. Although the subject matter is often back roads fever, that dead-end dreaminess, the poems are shot through with a smashing energy and a willingness to say just about anything, no matter how risky or wild. Karen Solie is a unique blend of irony and guts, of snarl and praise. She is so talented that even her darkest poems dazzle. --Brick Brooks

The road in is not the same road out : poems by Karen Solie( Book )
4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 79 libraries worldwide
"A profound new collection from one of poetry's rising stars "Introducing Karen Solie, I would adapt what Joseph Brodsky said some thirty years ago of the great Les Murray: '. He is, quite simply, the one by whom the language lives.'. And, yes, as we embark on the third millennium of our so-called Common Era, she is indeed the one by whom the language lives." --Michael Hofmann, London Review of Books A sublime singer of existential bewilderment, Karen Solie is one of contemporary poetry's most direct and haunting voices. A poet of the in-between places--the purgatory of wayside motels and junkyards, the abandoned Calgary ski jump and the eternal noon of Walmart--her poems stake out startlingly new territory and are songs for our emerging world, an age of uncertainty and melting icebergs. In Solie's new collection, The Road In Is Not the Same Road Out, she restlessly excavates our civilization, the moments of tough luck, casual violence, naked desire, and inchoate menace, pursuing "Beauty and terror / in equal measure" and fixing on the "Intrigue of a boarded-up building. / We want to get in there and find out what's the matter with it." Amplifying the elegant recklessness of her Griffin Poetry Prize-winning collection Pigeon, these poems bear an uncanny poetic intelligence and unflinching vision"--
