"Long before the current rise of eco-poetry, Steve Luxton was writing powerful and exquisitely crafted poems about and set in nature. An avid fisherman, canoeist and hiker, he has explored and recorded in memorable detail the region around his home in Quebec. This important collection brings together for the first time Luxton’s best nature poems written over the last 35 years and includes new and previously unpublished work. Influenced by well-known fellow poets and Eastern Townshippers, F. R. Scott, Louis Dudek, Ralph Gustafson, and D.G. Jones, Luxton has developed a mature and authoritative voice uniquely his own. Rich in language and metaphor, these poems dazzle at times with their depth and dissolve the barrier between Man and Nature. With a true and finely honed poetic gift, Luxton vividly portrays the natural world’s green particulars-what the Zen Buddhists term “The Ten Thousand Things.” Unsentimentally Post pastoral and also post Romantic, Luxton employs his eyes, ears, heart, and mind, with non-appropriating eloquence."--publisher

The dying meteorologist : and other poems by Steve Luxton( Book )

2 editions published in 2019 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Someone observed Canadians are the only people to talk about the weather and mean it. Certainly, our dramatic meteorological conditions provide a ready and easy conversational topic. Like hockey, our wide spaces, and clean water (?), our weather is a cliché at home and abroad. Over usage may trivialize it, but we are also dead serious about our weather, which, with its stark, primordial dramas, cracks our flesh and bones, bundles up our feelings, and inflicts itself on our imaginations. This is equally true whether we are outdoorsy types who embrace it, or indoorsy ones who shrink from it. (Another wag remarked that Canadians are less concerned with Revolution, than with Insulation….) We are dealing here with both an irreducible element and searching metaphor of the Canadian condition…. In Steve Luxton’s poems, lyric and narrative, the weather, its beauty and duress, its interplay with light and land, appears everywhere. His facility for expressing our native sky, land and air is evident whatever the central concern of the poem: Time, Love, Loss, or that Big Cold: Death. In the moving poetic sequence containing the piece from which this collection’s title, The dying meteorologist is drawn, the writer describes the winter-long illness and death of a dear friend with whom he has shared countless different temperatures and forays into wild air. Their relationship began and thrived in the profound natural metaphor. The eulogistic pieces that reflect and celebrate their bond suggest the moods of irrevocably changeful skies and the music of weather breeding winds…."--
Language matters : interviews with 22 Quebec poets( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Launched in 2009 on St. Jean Baptiste Day, Poetry Quebec was an online magazine dedicated to showcasing the English-language poets and poetry of "la belle province." Its founding editors and publishers--poets themselves--came from very different backgrounds but shared the desire to make sure the English-language poetry of Quebec got the attention it deserved. In this book, some of the best and most innovative English-language poets of Canada--rising stars and award-winning authors--reflect on these and other questions of politics and poetics. Culled from the website and expanded for this publication, those interviewed include Erín Moure and Stephanie Bolster (winners, Governor General's Award); GG nominee David McGimpsey; Trillium Prize nominee Mary di Michele; Susan Gillis and Gabe Foreman (winners, A.M. Klein Poetry Prize), Carolyn Marie Souaid and Endre Farkas (winners, Zebra International Poetry Film Festival, Berlin); performance poets Catherine Kidd, Moe Clark and kaie kellough; and Rhodes scholar Mark Abley--all contemplating the work they do against the backdrop of this interesting place and time."--Publisher website

Gagworld : poems by Steve Luxton( )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The poetry in this thesis speaks to the anxieties, pleasures, ambivalences and body-burdens of life. Also these poems concern themselves with that other imponderable-- Death, along with its abettor, Time. We men want, in language as in a freshly occupied bed, an outline of our bodies and concerns to remain, perfectly fossilizing our presence, or our absence. The "findings" of this Thesis, then, involve this: that poetry is of and serves the body. More accurately, each poem is an examination that becomes more and more physical. In this sense, we, the writer and readers, are also the poem's findings. Energized by our fresh discovery we have the appetite to attempt our lives once more."
