"Reading [All Our Wonder Unavenged] is like entering another realm, or ... glimpsing a strange, hidden side to our familiar world ... Domanski's poetry is a kind of alchemy." Ñ Barbara Carey, The Toronto Star"
... Endless, ecstatic configurations ... Stunning is his array of unusual verbs ... Reading Domanski is like rummaging around in wisdom scripture." Ñ George Elliot Clarke, The Halifax Chronicle-Herald

All poets can appreciate the ease of this writing, that moves gently but with assurance from one small, or large subject to another, as though they and all the other words have to be there, and you go, yes, this is so. We are glad to be reminded what we have taken for granted in the endlessly renewing world. And the simple lyricism that is what so much of Canadian poetry is, is not done so well as here in Domanski's eighth book of poems. There is much to be learned by many poets in this writing.
Anyway, Domanski's a good geezer from Cape Breton (from whence all folksy Canadian coolness arises) and his collection of poems beat out Atwood. Is it Pablo Neruda? No. But Canada isn't producing much that is memorable these days.
The poems are OTHERWORLDLY and ASTRAL, so lay down your yoga mat and trip out to Domanski's chillout verse. Much like Vancouver's Olympic mascots, his style is a cross between mysterious Canadian forest and misty Asian art.
