The 2009 Trillium Book Award winners were announced today. Congratulations to Pasha Malla and Jeramy Dodds who were named the winners of the 2009 Trillium Book Award and 2009 Trillium Book Award for Poetry, respectively. 

Speaking of Jeramy Dodds, I recently stumbled upon a terrific review of Crabwise to the Hounds by Jeff Latosik on the new Mansfield Press site. Check it out here. It’s also worth looking for Shane Neilson’s review of the same book in the latest issue of Arc for an entirely different, and perhaps more critically relevant, perspective.

    thanks for the props there jim. shane’s review really is awesome and it forced me to reconsider my take on the book.
    he raises a number of profound questions about, for lack of a better word, authorial distance.

    where i differ is that i don’t think dodds is MISSING emotion, as if emotion was something to turn up or down. dodds is doing something with building momentum through language, something that was hammered home to me seeing him read at the Griffin awards. Balancing technique and emotion in a lyrical, neo-formalist way is not, to me, what Dodds is up to and I don’t think it’s a set of terms that should be imposed upon him. there is no one set of terms for what poetry can do. There is only does it work?

    Hope all is well, and hopefully next time we bump into each other won’t be while crossing the street at rush hour. Tell Sandy I say hi!
