9781935656111: All This

All This is wonderful collection of poems. Indicative of the title, the poems range from the conventional lyric/narrative that captures an intense moment of emotion, an epiphany glimpsed briefly out of the corner of the eye, to the more experimental. Some of the poetry use intertextuality, language from other works, to explore meaning, perception, and layers of experience. Other poems play with language, letting it lead into unexpected places, exploring new terrain. In a few, placement on the page conveys the feel of musical notation and phrasing, the page a theatre where the interaction of language makes meaning rather than recreates a remembered event. At times, words in a poem are treated as paint and the sheet of paper as an expressionistic canvas. A book of poetry to keep close by you at all times.

From the Back Cover:

"There's a restlessness to Lily Mackenzie's poetry that might properly be
called 'curiosity' -- the eye alert in its socket, the ear straining to register.
'The vaults// of syllables' pour out their riches: a delectation of sky, a
rampage of color, the sweet sting of mortality. From Mendocino to the
Sea of Marmara to the Mexican highlands, these poems are afoot in the
Whitman sense, and wonderfully 'chewy'--deeply figured and sonically
dense. Or let's say they sink their teeth into experience, lap it right up,
'night splitting/ open and spilling// its milk.' In other words, what we have
here is poetic sustenance."

~Aaron Schurin, Academic Director for the University of San Francisco's
MFA program.

"The poems in Lily Iona McKenzie's All This are an engrossing atlas of
both geographical and emotional landscapes. They move from Canada to
California, from the body to bereavement, from poetry to politics, from
loss to love and back again. These innovative poems resonate because,
miraculously, their topographies feel both familiar and new. We love living
in them."

~Dean Rader, former Associate Dean of Arts & Sciences and current
professor of English at the University of San Francisco.
