Author: Colin Morton
"Morton’s sixth book,
a poem in six parts, coolly and eloquently ruffles our complacency
as he examines the burdens of peace, our penchant for self-doubt
and self-deception, and our shifting definitions of heroism ...
Where there is inhumanity – from senseless war, self-aggrandizement
or distorted values – there is also resilience and renewal.
Ultimately, walls come down. New neighbours extend the hand of
friendship. There is always someone ready to dance to the music.
Twice winner of The Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry, Morton
muses without moralizing: a thinker’s poet with grace and
expertise. Read and savour."
