This Being

Ingrid Ruthig's This Being is a poetry collection that analyzes the nature of being, self and belonging.

Ingrid Ruthig

In this, her debut collection, Ingrid Ruthig records the ebb and flow of individual life through time, landscape and our collective existence. How we connect with the past, where we are now, and despite our inherent separateness, our personal convergences — these are what lay ahead on this journey. Ruthig also explores our need to create, to build a deeper sense of self, of belonging: questioning, observing, then striving to respond. Her voice is confident, concentrated, wry. This is a book of poems about the dynamic of being, and our shifting perception of who we are from one moment to the next. (From Fitzhenry and Whiteside)
