I was thrilled to read Laura Cameron's dual-review of my book You Are Here: Essays on the Art of Poetry in Canada, and Carmine Starnino's Lazy Bastardism: Essays and Reviews on Contemporary Poetry, in the journal Canadian Literature. Click "Read more" for a taste:
"You Are Here and Lazy Bastardism are important books. On a practical level, they are important because they do justice to rich poetry and varied poetic careers through intelligent, sensitive, and captivating close readings. On a cultural level, they are important because they are concerned with nothing less than the future of Canadian poetry. Both Pollock and Starnino make the high stakes of their work palpable with grace and style."
