About this item
Poetry. Introduction by Linda Hutcheon. HOW TO DANCE IN THIS RAREFIED AIR offers select and new poems setting out Rienzi Crusz's journey as a poet writing in Canada since the 1970s. It offers a poetics fashioned to meet the demands of writing on the cusp between two worlds, hence the songs of exile, the idioms of defiance and survival, a poetry meeting the existential concerns of the immigrant encounter. But Crusz has gone beyond the theme of mere displacement, by confronting themes such as love, politics, nature, God, and poetics itself. And always there remains the self- conscious, bordering on the postmodern, and, above all, a delightful irony.
