Summary

The lovers of the fifth street" is filled with far-fetched repeated figures of metaphor and simile; though there are few direct references to some feasible modern issues that one can witness in our world, the main focus has been yet given to the use of figurative language; by doing so, the readers won't be bothered and confused; their minds will stay alerted and sensitive towards the hidden concepts while they play joyfully through the lines.
The poetry has been built upon a modern scenery; the symbol of modernity (New York) is presented with a mixture of different concepts that reminds us all of the different facets of "vividness": art, culture and the coffeeshop dynamic culture.
Since this book is the second volume of the "New York Winter Poetry Trilogy" the same atmosphere had to be reminded to the audience; but this time there has been a shift in the locations of events; new notions have been also added as the story line moves forward; the light has been shed on different and important slants; matters of racism, international interdisciplinary discriminations and the metamorphosis of human abstruse and complex relations; "lovers of the fifth street" is now a more comprehensive work; a combination of social, humanitarian and international concerns.

    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.

    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
