House of Anansi Poetry Bash
Featuring Sharon Thesen,
Matt Rader
and Ken Babstock

"Reading Ken Babstock is like following the trunk of a tree upward as it divides and subdivides, fraying into the finest threads until a beautiful but complex circuitry webs the sky. Simply put, he makes the brain hurt, forcing us to exert that dusty 90 per cent we rarely use.
— Edmonton Journal

We celebrate Poetry Month and another year of stellar poetry from House of Anansi Press with three of the most anticipated books of the year: 

 

Oyama Pink Shale , the latest collection from Governor General’s Literary Award finalist and celebrated poet Sharon Thesen, is a sly, self-directed, yet joyously emancipatory work. A Doctor Pedalled Her Bicycle Over the River Arno carries within it all the technique, vision, imaginative labour and razor-sharp precision of Matt Rader ’s first two collections but also ascends to a new and luminous, demanding, particularized realm of the human. Fearless in its language, its trajectories and frames of reference, Methodist Hatchet is the fourth collection from Ken Babstock, acclaimed by Time magazine as “one of the best things to happen to poetry in Canada.”
