"Witty and venturesome, by times ingeniuosly rhymed and outlandishly prosaic, the poems in To Newfoundland can speak in the voice of a Newfoundland dog, be organized around the names of newspapers and railroads, ruminate on Admiral Peary's earflapped headgear, or record Lady Godiva's thoughts ontax policy. Nearly all the poems in To Newfoundland represent some sort of journey to some sort of a new-found land, whether he Viking's journey to L 'Anse-aux-Meadowes, the metamorphosis of an adolescent girl as she takes onthe green plumage of a Girl Scout, or the poet's own excursions into tradi tional forms such as the sonnet, the villanelle, and the pantoum, or into prose poetry and play scenes. In this second collection of her poetry, Caroline Knox continually delights, skillfully mixing metaphors and committing puns, playing with poetic form and mocking seriousness." (from the back cover). Very good. 15.00
