Gift of Screws
Robin Hannah

Winner of the New Muse Award 1996

“Robin Hannah’s poetry displays both a depth of wisdom & increasing cynicism mixed with longing & pure romantic sentiment on par with the poetry of Emily Dickinson & the novels of Elizabeth Smart. In writing that struggles between wanting to be alone & wanting to be alone with someone, when Robin Hannah is good, she is very good. Hers is a stellar craft.”
— rob mclennan

“Robin crafts a poem like a Japanese master swordmaker creates a blade; using only the finest ingredients, forging at the precise temperature and folding steel in on itself, hundreds if not thousands of times.”
— b stephen harding, Graffito

“selection of key events and revealing details worthy of excavation”
The Globe and Mail

Robin Hannah likes to keep a low profile in and around Ottawa. True to the nature of the New Muse Award this is Robin Hannah’s first poetry collection. She has since appeared in the Shadowy Technicians: New Ottawa Poets anthology.
