Deer Crossing

Poems

by Gannon Hamilton

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
Deer Crossing is a book of short and serial poetry mainly concerned with bucolic or pastoral themes. This new pastoralism is more than a bit ironic, as it examines the interface among the urban ethos, the almost-lost art of meditating on nature, and the virtues of working outdoors. The poems are autobiographical and they were written between 1978 and 2013. Today, when such a diagnosis of Nature Deprivation Syndrome (NDS) is possible, this book is apt reading.

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.
