Review of Après Satie — For Two and Four Hands

Judges’ comments – Apres Satie – For Two and Four Hands – nominated for the 2017 Archibald Lampman Award

This book is arresting in its propulsive merging of narratives and its delicate, sophisticated lines. With sensuality and lyricism, Steadman deploys the vocabulary and references of Eric Satie’s life to create poems that, like Satie, recur, develop, and grow with serenely understated associations.
