"Darren Wershler-Henry's work presents a new synthesis of conceptual and visual poetics. Quoting, extending, and reinventing the work of bpNichol, Weshler-Henry has his own unique voice, eye, and point of view. Deft, wry, and intelligent, his mode of innovation is as comfortable with vernacular sources as it is with the varied traditions so self-consciously acknowledged in the creative recycling of poetic precedents. Wershler-Henry's poetry is very much of his--our--time in its combination of the abstract referent and cybernetic rhythms. Best of all, it points up all the spaces between these modes--the place where thought is made--and in this work, made manifest."
Visual Poetry. "Imagine each page of this book as an embalmed cross-section of the trunk of some exotic body. The black marks on the pages constitute the outlines of capillaries that perhaps once carried strange vital fluids from extremity to extremity, but now lie dry and clogged with tarry residue. This is a Manitoban Book of the Dead, leading from now/here to nowhere." In the world of NICHOLODEON, desire dwells in the spaces between where its readers expect to go and where the poems eventually take them; misreading is mandatory because there are only detours. "If this book was a bicycle, a tour-de-force would be the winner of the Tour de France, and we would have happily waited for Godot"--Steve McCaffery.
