Patrick Warner

Price: CDN$12.95

Book Description
Whether describing a fight outside a Claremorris dance hall, or studying leaves in a windswept college square, Patrick Warner's poems are as condensed as hardened snowballs, and strike, right on target, with great effect. Though structurally straight forward, his poems are both conceptually and imagistically complex and rife with symbolic and slightly surreal intention. The close attention and concentration these poems demand in reading is repaid with surprising insights and sudden perceptions - poems becoming ''. . . illegitimate keyholes to the divine''.

About the Author
Patrick Warner was born in Claremorris, Co. Mayo, Ireland in 1963 and emigrated to Canada in 1980. He studied at Memorial University of Newfoundland, completing a conjoint BA in Anthropology and English and later obtaining an MLIS degree from the University of Western Ontario. He currently resides with this wife and daughter in St. John's where he is employed as a Librarian at the Queen Elizabeth II Library.

His poetry and prose have appeared in numerous publications including, TickleAce, Poetry Ireland Review, Metre (Ireland), The Newfoundland Quarterly, The Fiddlehead, Matrix and Arc. His poetry has won awards in the annual Newfoundland and Labrador Arts and Letters Competition.


A grain of sand
has made the oyster.
This irritant
has set in motion
an inward rhythm,
a worrying S&M
in the ocean's vast ear.

When she answers,
silver fishes thread
the rising waves,
sending the boatman's
giving rise to all manner
of misunderstanding.
