Description

Laurence Hutchman's poetry is a witness to the world around him, to the patterns of families, nations, and landscape. He hears Mozart in the supermarket, and Nelligan breaking into song. While there's a refreshingly outward-looking documentary zeal in his poetry, transformations abound: a typewriter becomes a 'silent temple, ' a baseball glove a 'leather flower, ' a forest a 'way of going into myself.' With this selection from his previous books, it's clearer than ever how Hutchman's mix of curiosity-driven realism and metaphorical surprise gives his poetry generosity and scope. - Brian Bartletshow more
