Full Circle brings together poetry written across decades by one of Newfoundland’s best-loved writers. Balanced on the sharpest edge of life, yet caught in the ruthless pull of aging and death, these poems offer keen insights into the way the world was—and the way it ought to be. Throughout, Porter reminds us that change, like life, is a long and circuitous journey, and that the fight for a good life and a just society is never over.

PRAISE FOR FULL CIRCLE

“One of Fogwill Porter’s virtues is in balancing the book’s tonal registers, from the playful self-deprecation of “The Lady Vanishes”… to the more intimate, confessional vein of “The Dancer”, or her sly skewering of patriarchal constructs in her revision of Rudyard Kipling’s “If.” Throughout, Fogwill Porter reports on all us captives ‘on the carousel of tim’ with a kind and sympathetic eye, and from a vital, feminist viewpoint. Full Circle is a much welcome first collection from a trailblazer of Newfoundland and Labrador literature.” – E.J. Pratt Poetry Award jury
