Bellicose Veins

Poems

by Gannon Hamilton

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Bellicose Veins is a book of poems concerned with the dimensions of war and warfare, both in actual theatres of conflict and in those domains that we are accustomed to thinking of as peaceful. The poems are arranged in suites or series dealing with key moments in the life of the poet. The forms are invented in agreement with poetic content. Even though the subject matter runs from the Second World War into the new millennium, this book should be of increasing global relevance as we face current and future political challenges.

About the author
Gannon Hamilton was first published in 1981 in Blue Buffalo, a spin-off publication associated with Dandelion Press. From 1990 to 1995 his poems were published by the Dalhousie Review, Whetstone, Blood & Aphorisms, The Hart House Review, and OISE trans/forms. He has been a regular at such legendary haunts as the Bohemian Embassy and Café May, and has collaborated with poets from across Canada, the United States, Central America and the Caribbean. While still an undergraduate, Gannon recognized a need for literary anthropology and the study of cultural poetics. His master’s thesis was about dub poetry, the forerunner of rap and hip-hop. Gannon’s PhD research focussed on emergent poets in a Canadian high school setting. As a career musician and musical producer, he combines poetic, melodic and rhythmic media.
