Overview

Body Music reveals the remarkable depth and range of Dennis Lee as a poet and thinker.

In eleven ground-breaking essays, Lee explores the experience of body music: the dance of energy from which poems arise. Whether he is discussing rhythm as a form of cosmology, examining children's verse, or probing what it means to worship without belief, his explorations constantly fascinate and entertain.

At a time when literary theory can be highly abstract, Body Music is anchored in a writer's working experience. It opens up dramatic new ways to think about words and the world.
