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.
