Description

Though some will blanch and cluck their tongues at the brazen profaning of a more decorous world, these poems keep polite company with all who delight in poetry of quality. The poems in The Pissing Women of Leafontaine have their progenitor in ancient Roman poet Catullus, in 17th century English Poet Laureate John Dryden’ scatological masterpiece, “Macflecknoe,” in the flatulent Yahhos of Swift, and in Canada’s own sometime vulgarian, irving Layton. Bell writes with laugh-out-loud humor, and a deep respect for our predicament even at low moments in our lives.
