    To celebrate the publication of her first collection of new poetry for over a decade, the Canadian writer talks about her writing and the Genesis of her poems in Morning in the Burned House, which draw on classical and popular myth and the more personal concerns of love and the death of her father. "Atwiid brings all the violence of mythology into the present world...she is the quiet Mata Hari, the mysterious, violent... who pits herself against the ordered, too clean world like an arsonist" - Michael Ondaatje."
