The Quotations of BoneThe Quotations of Bone by Norman Dubie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Dubie's poems here are characterized by clever wordplay that construct images in the reader's mind by putting seemingly disparate things together in interesting ways. There is a bit of distance between the poet and his words; he often seems to be playing rather than getting at some sort of truth or carefully description of an image or reality, even when he is making some political comments. Still, it is a fun book, full of unexpected, often pleasing, language.
