World of Difference


Sudbury’s first poet laureate, Roger Nash, in this new book wrestles with the big issues of the day including what we are doing to our environment. But the language isn’t political, isn’t contentious. Instead, it seeks to move the reader to paying attention, finding ways to recognize the inherent beauty in the world around us. As the renowned poet and critic Bruce Meyer says, “Roger Nash is more than a poet of whimsy. His eye for delicate detail and beauty, coupled with a natural gift for insight, synthesis, and deep understanding, transform the poems … from mere records of life into penetrating statements on the human condition.” His language, too, is “celebratory, intimate, elegiac – and challenging,” says Ottawa poet Susan McMaster.
