Spit on the Devil (Paperback) (Samantha Bernstein)
about this item
The poems collected in Spit On The Devil tell stories of urban life in North America, from an ****** revolutionary in Gilded Age Chicago, to a great-grandfather in Philadelphia, to kids who turned abandoned Toronto factories into homes at the turn of the millennium. The collection has been shaped by love in many forms, by motherhood, fear and political frustration. Bernstein addresses the past, including her relationship as both a writer and the daughter of her father, the late poet Irving Layton. By calling up distant and departed people and places whose presence is nonetheless felt and necessary, Bernstein deftly explores the tension between repetition and change, with processes of evolution - geographical, artistic, political and personal.
