When Taylor fails it’s precisely because he’s unstylish...But he’s a world-class talent who needs, finally, to occupy the major place he’s spent a quarter-century earning.

Synopsis

Bruce Taylor's wide-ranging curiosity and capacity for wonderment are what drive his art. Whether he is perusing a strange old book, peering through a microscope at life forms in pond water, observing his own heart on screen during an echocardiogram, gazing into a glass marble, or climbing in the window of an abandoned church to see what kind of glory/ had been boarded up in there, Taylor is on a quest for whats under the pudding skin of our lives and of life itself. Conversational yet elegant, cycling between humour and gravitas, his poems peel back surfaces to reveal unsuspected worlds within worlds. No End in Strangeness brings together new poetry and a generous selection of Taylors past work. The volume includes long-time favourites and first-time print versions of poems commissioned and broadcast by the CBC.
