Complicity

Complicity

Adam Sol


a blinding and exhilarating new selection of poetry from an award-winning Canadian poet. For enthusiasts of Ken Babstock, A.F. Moritz, and Karen Solie.

Award-winning poet Adam Sol's fourth assortment is a meditation on complicity. through turns intimate and lyrical, experimental and outlandish, the gathering focuses us on how we can't break out the troubling constructions that verify our lives. How can we establish ourselves with groups - nationwide, cultural, or neighborhood - whereas conscious of the violence which underlies their preparations? How can we pursue love once we understand how fraught and imbalanced gender politics is? How can we proceed to worth artwork regardless of the present rhetoric that considers it a marginal discourse? The poems are humorous, allusive, off-kilter, and sonically wealthy, whereas crucially interrogating, lit with, the modern ethos.
