Description

Avant-garde poets challenge the reading and writing status quo,and question what a poem may be. Canada's cutting-edge authors have been widely acclaimed internationally as some of the most important innovators of the 20th and 21st centuries. Conventional poetry anthologies may emphasize traditional lyric poetry; Shift & Switch offers a unique alternative: radicality, innovation, and experimentation with sound, visual elements, mathematics, surrealism, and “pataphysics, in convenient book-form! Crack the spine of this highly anticipated collection to discover Canada's next generation of avant-garde poets and their electrifying poetry.
