A rare new book of verse from one of the most recognized and distinguished names in Newfoundland poetry and drama, Agnes Walsh.

This exciting new collection by a beloved Newfoundland poet at the height of her craft focuses on nature and women, with strong imagery and an innate sense of line. It considers the permeable barrier between inside and outside, between self and world. These deceptively simple poems convey wisdom and a profound depth of perception in their evocation of beauty, illness, vulnerability, and place.

The poems of The Wind Has Robbed the Legs Off a Madwoman draw from myth, folklore, local history, the unique dialect of Irish Newfoundland, and the edges of feminism and patriarchy.
