By Adam Sol
A blinding and exhilarating new selection of poetry from an award-winning Canadian poet. For lovers of Ken Babstock, A.F. Moritz, and Karen Solie.
Award-winning poet Adam Sol's fourth assortment is a meditation on complicity. by means of turns intimate and lyrical, experimental and outlandish, the gathering focuses us on how we can't get away the troubling buildings that confirm our lives. How can we establish ourselves with groups - nationwide, cultural, or neighborhood - whereas conscious of the violence which underlies their preparations? How can we pursue love after we understand how fraught and imbalanced gender politics is? How will we proceed to price artwork regardless of the present rhetoric that considers it a marginal discourse? The poems are humorous, allusive, off-kilter, and sonically wealthy, whereas crucially interrogating, lit with, the modern ethos.
