Anonymity SuiteBook - 1992
Anonymity Suite reaffirms David McFadden's reputation as one of the more interesting and completely enjoyable voices in Canadian poetry. Like a Pre-Raphaelite painter, he is able to join various objects, experiences, voices, and moods in a single canvas. A poem may begin with someone studying Italian on the shore of Lake Como, or drinking kava with firewalkers in the South Seas, and end up with Kelly Gruber and the notorious Skydome heckler. Formally, this is very much a suite of poems, using images from nature, history, and culture to unite thematic strands dealing with sentimentality and anonymity, joy and grief, personality and universality, and a wealth of philosophical and ethical concerns.
