Overview

Ashland by Gil Adamson


?We look away from his open mouth, look instead at the corn, the crows floating above the river in their private worries. Tonight, when we turn in, the candle will sputter and blow. Pinched out easily, all flame gives way to this wide black wing. – excerpt from “Black Wing” The poems in Ashland, originally published by ECW in 2003, lay the groundwork for Adamson’s award-winning and internationally bestselling novel, The Outlander. Neogothicism, the surrealist snapshot, feminist Western and postmodern parable are just some of the elements that feed Gil Adamson’s second collection of poems. Adamson creates a world fully awash in violence and history, the absurdities of the frontier, the gorgeous terrors of death. Everything is simple, and yet nothing is as it seems. Moving easily from prose poem to lyric, verbal portrait to improbable biography, Ashland leads us on a macabre tour of our nightmares, perverse secrets, and death-focused mythologies: “In the end we see ourselves. We last longer. The night opens its mouth, and we step in.”

Shadowflight: I think we should. I don't think we should wait for Sparrowstar. He is not active a lot, so why can't he be deputy instead? <br> Nightshade, Jaykit, Poppykit, Emberkit, Streakkit, Shadowkit, Flightkit, & Artickit agree.
