Apprehensions of Van Gogh: Selected Poems, 1960 – 2014
David Pratt

Apprehensions of Van Gogh: Selected Poems, 1960 – 2014

The settings for David Pratt’s poetry are as diverse as their content and form, including Canada, Cuba, the Czech Republic, Israel, France, Norway, Spain, and the isles of Greece. Certain themes recur: war is one of them, reflecting the poet’s childhood under German bombers in wartime England. Another theme is art and artists, celebrating the work of the Canadian Fred Varley, the Czech Jakub Schikaneder, the Norwegian Edvard Munch, and the Dutch van Gogh. Other poets and writers are memorialized: Irving Layton, Al Purdy, Isaac Babel, André Frénaud. Interspersed among these pieces are personal poems that record the heart`s journey across the decades.

redirection
Brian Way

redirection

From its innovative sonnet sequence on Canada’s Prime Ministers to myriad ruminations on matters local and intimate, national and universal, Way’s redirection is a Canadian book of poetry that seeks, unceasingly, to lay bare the Canadian psyche and that of the world beyond. In the end, a galvanic collection of innovative poetry—a very good collection of poetry—unique, its aim grand and complex, minuscule and simplistic, its language sharp as a Canadian season. Matters personal and national, styles changeable, eclectic as lightning—eclectric, perhaps, like that marvellous heal-all elixir Dr. Thomas once sold across the country—different and diverse and Canadian as … well, as we Canadians.

The Darker Edges of the Sky
Wayne Schlepp

The Darker Edges of the Sky

The deeper subjects of these fifty-eight spare poems—minute observations over some sixteen years of a single stretch of swamp and bush, and of the self that does the observing—include the alien/ kindred lives and deaths of birds, animals and trees; the miraculous gift of light; the relationship between ourselves and the world we observe (what difference does it make that, in us, the natural realm both is and is known?); and our troubled sense of time carrying us and our world ineluctably towards the known end of death and decay, and perhaps too the unknown we always sense beyond the surface of things. These poems are to be read carefully, turned over in the mind, and savoured with a slow and complex delight.

Love In The (Irrational) Imperfection

“Writing with a knife, drawing ink form the body of memory, K.V. Skene articulates a map of grief in this collection. Her “poems from alone” transcend the letter I and focus on the omniscient eye that sees past her lost world to the renaissance of joy.” Linda Rogers

Tilted Equilibrium
Hidden Brook Press Authors

Tilted Equilibrium

The poems in Tilted Equilibrium will knock you off kilter, pitch you over the handlebars and into the mud, tickled by dazzle, splashed in the loblolly of language, word-spiced by varieties of experience as you move from childhood, through adolescent awakening, to childbirth, motherhood, and on into the bitter-sweet triumphs and disappointments of adulthood.

In The Cafe Du Monde

When I drop into the Café du Monde in New Orleans, I feel like it has no walls. Maybe this is because I often sit at one of the curbside tables under the green and white striped canopy to watch street performers. Whether taking shelter indoors from a sudden lightning storm or the sweltering heat, I always have the same feeling – this is a place with a heart big enough to contain the whole world.

Aqua Planet

“These are poems about confluence—of river and sea, of sea and shore, of both with man and dog, of father and son, of spirit and Spirit. They are laced with close observation, awe humility, pleasure and pondering. If you love where the ocean meets the land (and all the creatures drawn to that meeting), you will value these words of poetic tribute.”Daniel TaylorProfessor of English, Bethel University

Island on the Wind-Breathed Edge of the Sea
John Lee

Island on the Wind-Breathed Edge of the Sea

“Island on the Wind-Breathed Edge of the Sea”, is a collection of poetry by, arguably, one of Canada’s finest living People’s Poets, John B. Lee. After numerous literary awards, over 50 books, over 500 anthologies and many trips to Cuba this is Lee’s first full collection of Cuba poems. They are the perceptions, perspectives and reflections on the Cuban landscape, its peoples, the sounds and sights, the sea and the wind and how they all fold into a poetic experience. These poems will bring you closer to the real Cuba than any guide or travel book could possibly do. This is one of John B. Lee’s finest books.
