Overview

Winding their way through places that are experiencin g a change of purpose, Jonathan Bennett's poems move with a unique, seductive language and an irresistible drive. Revelling in the articulation of transition, as awestruck by the possibilities of change as it is keenly aware of loss, this debut collection rejects the too-easy judgements of navigation guided solely by a moral compass. With influences as diverse as the poetry of Les Murray and the painting of Edward Hopper, Here is my street, this tree I planted bounces, both linguistically and culturally, from one end of the globe to the other -- and back again. Always moving, always seeking, always metamorphosing: Bennett's writing is the kind of poetry this country needs -- one that's as universal as it is Canadian.
