In The Stone Skippers, Burgham launches dazzling poems that explore
the central core of our humanity upon the Canadian literary
landscape. The poems examine how love is a territory we map with
little skill. The speaker returns again and again to the distances
we set up or have imposed upon ourselves by relationships of desire
and love, all against the motif of conversations - inner
conversations, day-to-day conversations, one-sided conversations,
unfinished and halting conversations.As Canadian poet Carolyn Smart
has remarked, Ian Burgham's collection, The Stone Skippers is a
rare volume: a book filled with generous emotion as well as craft
and polish. What is said is as important as how it is said. Each
line break, each simile, each rhythmic construct: all these things
display both care and wisdom, and that's a treasure.
