Night Physics

by M. Travis Lane


This title is out of stock.

Night Physics is an entirely new collection by one of Canada’s most respected poets. M. Travis Lane shows with deft elegance how apparently ordinary moments or scenes are the locus of great significance, both for our individual lives and in a wider sense. “Anachronic Gnat Music,”  the long poem which centres this collection, is a piece of true Mozartean comedy – its abundant wit is informed by a deep and sympathetic understanding of the human heart, its meditations are profound but its touch is always light.

This is a poetry of intense emotion, etched with intelligence.
