              So what if I left language by the pier. Metaphor's a raft, declares Andrew DuBois as he leads readers through a fractured past and present -- from slummy memories of streets to a a charnelhouse (?) of possible clowns -- defamiliarizing, critiquing, and satirizing a wide range of ...conversational forms in the style of Wallace Stevens and Michael Palmer. Yet, as lives at time degenerate into victory competitions, and the poet alternates between searching for an escape from the mundane and accepting that merely being there together is a dull catastrophe, we recognize that a formally wry, almost flippant, voice has become caught in language's web. The surfaces of the poems begin to feel like thin ice, a brittle coating over which we skate for as long as it lasts. Danger lurks here: the poet must play the puppet, not the puppeteer and we must surrender, body and soul, into language as element.

              Literary Nonfiction. Poetry. In this wide-ranging collection, Andrew DuBois rounds up some 200 reviews of contemporary Canadian poets (from Jordan Abel to Jan Zwicky); American poets, memoirists, and novelists; and twenty-first century literary critics. With an approach that bala...nces careful attention to aesthetics and style with an over-arching commitment to the crucial role of the arts in our personal and social lives, DuBois describes the objects under his discussion with a clarity and precision that aims to be both fair to the artists and enlightening for the reader. Eschewing obscurity, exiling jargon, and resisting political boilerplate, START TO FIGURE is a compelling record of over twenty years of critical response, from a lover of genuine art, meant to educate and entertain.
