Diana Fitzgerald Bryden, Anne Carson, Sue Goyette, Karen Solie, Jan Zwicky and David O’Meara – showcased by Lemonhound

Lemonhound blogs “10 Canadian Poetry Volumes” – “Okay, here’s a tentative list… These are the books that have most engaged me in the past decade in one way or another. Books I have carried around with me, come back to, written toward and against. They aren’t necessarily favorites, or even best, those lists are less interesting to me. These texts constitute the ways in which I have been stretched. They aren’t obscure texts and  I am not the only one they have moved, which is to say  they have entered into contemporary poetic discourse. The list is alphabetical. Many of them are represented in Open Field, though not always with the same book.” 

“…All of the poets in Open Field of course, though many selections are not from this decade. There are few that also piqued my interest and impressed me in one way or another… 

The Vicinity, David O’Meara
