Motion in Poetry charts a journey in language that is rich in contemporary African-Canadian rhythms. Invoking the spirit of Toronto's dub poet legends, Brathwaite makes a name for herself within the spoken word vernacular, while in other poems, strict, Standard English is put to the service of her unique and powerful storytelling. Motion in Poetry reads like a swaying ride through life, love, raw desire, political irony, fiery emotions about race, class and gender, touching sadness and sweet, dry humour.
