Rate this:

Drawn equally from recent, previously unpublished work and from earlier books now out of print, this brief selection of Doug Fetherling's poetry deals with the dangers posed by a technocratic society. It grapples with the question of whether we can guard against a dystopian nightmare by observing ceremony and ritual and by remembering how history accumulates silently from daily experience. With its contemporary urban sensibility and its love of sometimes archaic languate, Variorum shows the essential consistency of Fetherling's voice over the past two decades.
