McKAY, Don. Angular Unconformity : Collected Poems, 1970-2014. (Fredericton): Icehouse Poetry, an imprint of Goose Lane Editions, (2014). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-583,(1). 8vo, cream cloth with gilt lettering to spine, yellow ribbon place marker.
"'Angular Unconformity' shows us a life's work in cross-section, a restless and humane intelligence, ever searching, ever shifting, finding significance in our blink-of-an-eye existence against a backdrop of geological time unimaginable in its scale. A shrewd observer of the sounds and the poetics of nature, Don McKay attunes his senses to bird song and music, to human presence and geological formations, to vernacular speech and inanimate silence. In his eloquent, yet exuberant encounters with the wilderness, he walks the fault line between the known and the unknown, testing the uncertain mechanism of language and its imperfect gestures toward meaning.
This first comprehensive collection of Don McKay's poetry displays this pre-eminent Canadian poet's gift for thinking through metaphor, for channelling a profound philosophical discourse through poetic imagery. In poem after poem, his disciplined attention and contemplative mind break through the commonplace, illuminating an ecological understanding of the world as it is." - from the dustjacket.
