Like a sculptor finding the image trapped within the stone he carves, Glen Downie shapes shards of history and humanity into arresting poetry in his newest collection Loyalty Management.
Moving from the streets of Toronto, to the joys of fatherhood, to Chile’s “serrated edge”; Downie’s polished poems reveal hard truths as well as moments of tenderness and wonder, with his abilities bounded only by the fragment of humanity to which he has turned his poet’s pen. This is a formidable collection from an established Toronto poet.
