The late sun falls slowly into the afternoon of your eyes, and there
it pauses as one might pause to take a breath,
— from "Lost"
Nothing Is But You and I, the breathtaking new volume in the Apostrophes series, reveals poet E. D. Blodgett at his most accomplished. A masterful lyrical grace meets exquisite technique as Blodgett fathoms intimacy, knowledge, and being. The poems allow us to listen to one side of an intimate conversation between I and Thou; yet despite this inward focus, the speaker looks up and out at a larger world, inviting us into contemplations of loss, time, memory, and the ineffable other. These majestic poems reward deep reading and deliberation. Reflecting the heights of one of the most distinguished poetry careers in Canada, this volume is a must-have for anyone who loves or studies Canadian literature or poetry.
