Poems that take the skin off emotion, let laughs out like hens from the roost: Skrag, farm mongrel, springs to the whistle in bony narrative, endearing as the musk he charms and obeys; "Descartes & Dick," mad-cap Western, turns Descartes loose on a plane of rustic lunacies where cowboys attend closely upon ladies and the finer points of grammar; lyrics, including "The Cottage Poems," stray through a landscape of pain and rejoicing where those who wait are sustained by the smallest miracles.
David Arnason is the head of the English Department at the University of Manitoba and the acting head of the university's Icelandic Studies Department.He has written and edited dozens of books-poetry, short stories, drama, criticism, non-fiction, and novels.
