Sherman, Kenneth:

Black River - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780889842892

Everything flows; nothing remains.' With this trenchant quotation from Heraklitos, Kenneth Sherman introduces the theme and the mood of this collection of poems linked by the association of each with a river, the Black, a meandering stream near Sutton, Ontario. With an inspired and wide-ranging mix of history, personal reminiscence and social comment, all of it delivered with frequent allusion and affecting imagery, Sherman draws us into a complex and compelling world. Alexander Pope has described poetry as: What oft' was thought but ne'er so well expressed.' Succinctness and eloquence: these are the qualities that mark the best poetry. Somehow Kenneth Sherman achieves the near impossible task of blending tragedy with comic irony, the Holocaust and the decimation of Canada's First Nations with the posturing of politicians and that of certain literary impresarios. Sherman's wry look at Canada lightens the mood at times - We're left with a bumpkin nation fanatics of the Brewery devotees of Hockey Jet-skiers, snowmobilers. The recurring river images evoke echoes of Margaret Laurence's "Diviners, " though her river flowed both ways' while Sherman's is a one-way journey. Allusions to death by water, Virginia Woolf and the local ice vendor compound the classical references to Lethe and the Rivers of Babylon to enhance the prevailing mood of sadness and loss. Finishing the work, one is moved to reflect on the complex fabric of ancestry, experience and chance that determine our fates, and one's impulse is to read "Black River" again, and again. Black River Sherman, Kenneth With wit and moral acuity, with language as persuasive as a river's broad current, Kenneth Sherman confronts the anguish of our past and of our present, and offers us a harsh contrivance of spirit against death'. "Black River" is a poetic myth for our time.
