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

This intimate new collection by a beloved poet at the height of her craft draws from myth, folklore, local history, and the unique dialect of Irish Newfoundland. Considering the permeable barrier between inside and outside, between self and world, the deceptively-simple poems of The Wind Has Robbed the Legs Off a Madwoman convey wisdom and a profound depth of perception in their evocation of beauty, illness, vulnerability, and place. Walsh’s voice is indeed so distinct that if one were walking down the street and a page from this book blew around their feet, they would know after only a few lines that it was the work of Agnes Walsh.
