By Adam Dickinson

Shortlisted for the 2007 Trillium booklet Award for Poetry

Ecologically acutely aware poems, hardwired to the mind and the center in equivalent measure.

Adam Dickinson's poems, with enterprise highbrow chew and creative scope, achieve clean degrees of poetic -- and ecological -- understanding. occasionally equivalent to Wallace Stevens, occasionally of Christopher Dewdney, and with the ghost of Foucault continually in attendance, they ply a language that's cool and designated at the floor to open into the deep resonance of geologic time. resourceful and contemplative, this writing is certain to refresh the imaginative and prescient of the main world-weary reader.

The poems in nation, Phylum push the limits of concept and language. Bringing lyrical and unsystematic modes of knowing into play, and holding his ear tuned to the various disruptions taken with taxonomical association, Dickinson exhibits how poetry either participates in, and unsettles, the provisional orders which improve among notice and world.
