Abstract:

A masterpiece of late style and friendship, this volume combines back to back two powerful new works by old masters, George Bowering and George Stanley. George Stanley Bowering's SOME END is a suite of thirty two poems tracking his recovery from a near fatal cardiac arrest in 2015. Stanley's WEST BROADWAY is a long poem, composed over the past decade, following on Stanley's other long city poems, San Francisco's Gone, Terrace Landscapes, and Vancouver: A Poem. Like those poems, West Broadway has embedded in it shorter verse poems that stand on their own. It is a narrative/lyrical work, set along the West Broadway corridor on the West Side of Vancouver. It's a sequence of events, personally experienced but largely uninterpreted, that may take place crossing the street or on the sidewalk, riding the bus, in interiors, or in dreams. Along the way there are versions of poems by Charles Baudelaire and Anna Akhmatova.
