Abstract:

For over thirty years, Steve Venright has devoted himself to the liberation of the imagination, documenting hallucinatory trips through Southwestern Ontario's deliriomantic landscapes with his signature puns, portmanteaus, and spoonerisms. The Least You Can Do Is Be Magnificent: Selected & New Writings is a generous gathering of Venright's most enduring and extraordinary poems, including the revised and expanded "Manta Ray Jack and the Crew of the Spooner"--the most outlandish and hilarious seafaring tale since Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark. This volume also features a lively examination of Venright's work by scholar Alessandra Porco--back cover.
