“Morton’s sixth book, a poem in six parts, coolly and eloquently ruffles our complacency as he examines the burdens of peace, our penchant for self-doubt and self-deception, and our shifting definitions of heroism … Where there is inhumanity – from senseless war, self-aggrandizement or distorted values – there is also resilience and renewal. Ultimately, walls come down. New neighbours extend the hand of friendship. There is always someone ready to dance to the music. Twice winner of The Archibald Lampman Award for Poetry, Morton muses without moralizing: a thinker’s poet with grace and expertise. Read and savour.”
