Summary

Love, sex, death, God, and nature are just some of the hot, fervent kisses that you'll find in this collection of contemporary, perplexed poetry. It draws its inspiration from the works of Bukowski, Poe, Baudelaire, Ungaretti, Neruda, and the Bible, among others. It reflects the unease, anger, doubts, and rage of our present situation while lyrically transporting us towards possible solutions. For all those concerned about our future this is beautiful intriguing poetry from the Threshold of The End of Days but, hopefully, not the End of Love.
Available since: 11/14/2022.
Print length: 130 pages.

    The Porcupinity of the Stars

    Poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work so compelling is 'Barwin’s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.' The Porcupinity of the Stars sees the always bemused and wistful poet reaching into new and deeper territory, addressing the joys and vagaries of perception in poems touching on family, loss, wonder and the shifting, often perplexing nature of consciousness. His Heisenbergian sensibility honed to a fine edge, the poems in this bright, bold and acutely visual book add a surreptitious intensity and wry maturity to Barwin’s trademark gifts for subtle humour, solemn delight, compassion and invention.
     
    'Between the freaky, funny filmmaker Guy Maddin and author Gary Barwin, Canada is producing some of the most innovative creative works of our time.' – Utne Reader

    Night Became Years is poetry in the sauntering tradition of the flâneur. Stefanik loafers his way over sacred geography and explores his own mixed heritage through the lexicon of Elizabethan canting language. Comparing the terminology of fifteenth-­century English beggar vernacular with a contemporary Canadian inner­-city worldview, the poems in Night Became Years unfold as separate entities while at the same time forming a larger narrative on the possibilities of poetry today and the nature of mixed­-blood identity.
