Anthropy (Ray Hsu)

I'm impressed by the range of this book — Hsu scatters his attentions without coming across as dilettantish and displays a wide variety of influences. More poetry needs to exist in this liminal space between the so-called “camps” of lyrical and experimental work in Canada. Hsu also avoids a pitfall of many writers who take literary figures as sources of poetic inspiration — his poems on Walter Benjamin don't devolve into theory-speak or overwrought nonsense like similar work by other writers. A strong debut and I'm glad to see Hsu has another book out, which I'll endeavour to obtain when I manage to clear my shelves enough to have room for new books.
