bill bissett, who recently celebrated his seventieth birthday, remains even in his "biblical years" Canada's most exciting, innovative pioneer in the field of the written, spoken, performed, illustrated and sculpted word. No one over the past half century comes close to what bissett has accomplished in pushing the boundaries of language beyond what was imagined in the mid-twentieth century as their furthest possible horizon, and what is most astonishing is that he is still the vanguard of that movement in the "language arts", not just in Canada, but around the world today. As a way of introducing new readers to the non-hierarchical orthography, syntax and breath-determined metric and cadence so essential to the construction of meaning in the performance scores of his narrative poetry, Talon asked bissett to tell his readers in his own inimitable and "raging" way what his latest book is "about": time &nbsp&nbsp is reelee abt how evreething is fleeting n how we deel with that n how deeplee we undrstand that awareness&nbsp th jewels shine as our undrstandings&nbsp th layrs n openings&nbsp apertures n iris lens in&nbsp or not n how manee narrativs reveel our paradoxikul n continualee shifting minds ? a storee is what time is it ?&nbsp4 ourselvs&nbsp n our specees&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp n how timeless th breth uv th galaxee&nbsp n oftn ourselvs&nbsp tho agen fleeting&nbsp lyrik&nbsp song chant&nbsp philosophikal&nbsp theologikul&nbsp prsonal&nbsp propheseez&nbspvizual &nbspn tanguld tangos ? with th invisibul dansrs ? n th 4tune tellrs shuffuling theyr decks&nbsp how we yern 4&nbsp n letting go uv our games finding love&nbsp n th chancs 4 savin th environment n our selvs- bill bissett "His poetry addresses the limitless discussion of the boundaries between the personal and the political."- National Post
