Shared Universe : New and Selected Poems 1995-2020
by Paul Vermeersch and Daniel Scott Tysdal




Overview -

"An invaluable aid in this time of troubled spirits, muddled truths, and convoluted thinking." -- Mark Mothersbaugh, Devo

Paul Vermeersch has reinvented the "new and selected." Bringing together the very best of his poetry from the last quarter century with new and never-before-published works, Shared Universe is a sprawling chronicle of the dawn of civilizations, the riddles of 21st-century existence, and any number of glorious, or menacing, futures. Selected poetry collections are traditionally organized according to the books in which the poems first appeared, but these poems are arranged by prophecy and mythos, corresponding to the human (or trans-human) body, or as dictated by animal speech. In this universe, time is thematic instead of chronological, and space is aesthetic rather than voluminous. Here, alongside popular favourites, are recently unearthed gems and visionary new poems that reveal the books hidden within the books of one of Canada's most distinctive and imaginative poets.
