Product Description

Review

"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

Published and reviewed internationally, his work has been translated into Czechoslovakian, Portuguese, and Spanish.

Format: Paperback
This book of poetry is sure, quiet, endlessly inventive in images and thoughts that flow from one phrase to the next in an apparent effortlessness that is, as Dickinson said it: the gift of screws. Hard, hard work by a mature poet who has come to a flowering point in his art. Nature poetry in the best sense of the words. This book deserved the GG.

write and rewrite then shut off the light roll the great stone
back into place all flat land after that all the way to sleep

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.

Format: Paperback
Don Domanski appeared onstage at the recent G-G awards bearing his Buddhist rosary for all to see. He lectured the rapt audience, decked out in black ties, about the ephemeral nature of ALL THINGS. He then accepted the prize and the cash that goes with it. Damn, what happened to guys like Ikkyû who eschewed all worldliness in the name of Dharma?

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.
