Vancouver: A Poem alive in Poetry Is Dead

"[S]harp, almost mercilessly truthful," says reviewer Norbert Ruebsaat

2010.02.08 — The inaugural issue of Poetry is Dead reviews Vancouver: A Poem, George Stanley's ode to his adopted hometown of Vancouver. Reviewer Norbert Ruebsaat writes that "Stanleys observations are sharp, almost mercilessly truthful. They have rhythm and heart in the objective sense". He goes on, "Stanley asks these questions and gets our readers minds and brains and temperaments and, yes, our hearts involved". Ruebsaat recommends the poem "Seniors," as "a must-read for those who read [William Carlos] Williams back then and who yes we can are still reading today."
