‘a rare poet capable of changing lives’

(Tim Lilburn)

This beautiful new book is a celebration of the work of one of Canada’s finest poets, the late Don Domanski. It distills his forty-five-year career into 108 poems gathered from his nine published collections, most of which are now out-of-print.

‘there is no better poet writing in English’

(Mark Strand)

The book also gathers the poet’s later writing published through Corbel Stone Press, beginning with his 2014 pamphlet Field Notes, followed by those poems featured in our journal Reliquiae. The collection is completed by his previously unpublished ‘A Prayer of Thanks’, written for the Summer Solstice of 2017, and his seminal essay, Poetry and the Sacred.

‘a necromancer of words, a seer’

(Lorna Crozier)

Not simply essential for previous admirers of his work, this collection is a much-needed antidote to the anthropocentrism that prevails in contemporary Western culture. It is surely requisite reading for anyone sensitive to our current global environmental crisis, and to the needs of the other-than-human world.
