9780919688421: Iridium

Beautifully shaped and with language full of sensuous intimations, here is the latest volume of poems by Steve Luxton. From the tensile short lyrics of "Hermit Crab Song" to the loosely sashaying rhythms of "Morning After: At the Dacha," Luxton's sustained vision compels and fascinates. As G.V. Downes comments in Canadian Literature, Luxton is both original and aware, a poet "who sees with precision" the Canadian landscape. Like the being in the title poem "Iridium," the reader is urged for a moment to relinquish the grotesque world of appearances to find shapes that sound, touch, and endure.

About the Author:

Steve Luxton was born in Coventry, England and now makes his home in Montreal. He is a founder of the Montreal Storytellers, an oral and narrative performance group, as well as an original editor of The Moosehead Review. He has edited a collection of short stories entitled Saturday Night at the Forum (1981) and (with Janice LaDuke) an anthology of poetry entitled Full Moon (1983), featuring a number of leading Canadian women writers. His first book, Late Romantics, a collaboration with Robert Allen and Mark Teicher, was published in 1980.

Review:

...here, for those who know Montreal's east-end porches and staircases, England and Quebec fuse. -- Canadian Literature

It moves me very much — a soul crying out in the wilderness, with a strange, mad rhetoric.... -- Louis Dudek

This is a most interesting poet. -- The Victoria Times Colonist
