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, Luxtons 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 shapes...
" which I, floating on
...here, for those who know Montreal's east-end porches and staircases, England and Quebec fuse.
It moves me very much a soul crying out in the wilderness, with a strange, mad rhetoric....
This is a most interesting poet.
