Apostrophes VIII

Nothing Is But You and I

The late sun falls slowly into the afternoon of your eyes, and thereit pauses as one might pause to take a breath —from "Lost" Nothing Is But You and I, the breathtaking final volume in the Apostrophes series, reveals poet E.D. Blodgett at his most accomplished. Lyrical grace meets exquisite technique as Blodgett fathoms intimacy, knowledge, and being. The poems allow us to listen to one side of an intimate conversation; yet despite this inward focus, the speaker looks up and out at a larger world, inviting us into contemplations of loss, time, memory, and the ineffable other.

Endorsements

"Blodgett was perhaps the greatest living master of prosody in Canadian poetry, and this lifetime of craft is evident in every poem. Apostrophes VIII is exceptional—the culmination of one of the most distinguished poetry careers in Canada in the past fifty years."

"These are accomplished, weighty poems that demand full immersion on the part of the reader. They are dense and metaphysical with their own signature rhythm which often feels like waves crashing onto a shore, or a pebble thrown into water, and the rings from its weight moving outward into wider circles."
