About this product
- DescriptionA poetry that is at once harrowing, angry, and achingly beautiful Patrick Woodcock has spent the past seven years engaging with and being shaped by the people, politics, and landscapes of the Kurdish rth of Iraq, Fort Good Hope in the Northwest Territories, and Azerbaijan. His powerful new collection offers a poetry that simultaneously explores hope and horror while documenting the transformative processes of coping. You can t bury them all follows the narratives we construct to survive the tragic failures of our humanity to their very end: everything that s buried by sw, dirt, and ash, just like everything that s buried by politics, homophobia, sexism, racism, religion; and history is resurrected, demanding to be heard and addressed. In Woodcock s poetry, how we deal with what resurfaces is the key. What do those who suffer really mean to those who have abandoned them to small, conscience-soothing charitable donations or the occasional tweet? How can the poet, or anyone else, sleep at night kwing homosexuals are being thrown off building tops, after one steps into a hole and finds an abandoned corpse in an Azeri cemetery, or after the elders of an Aboriginal community are left helpless against those who only want to exploit them?
