Reviews - What do customers think about The Velocity of Dust (Salmon Poetry)?

The Velocity of Dust  Aug 6, 2008
With sharp imagery, metaphor and music, the poems in The Velocity of Dust sift through the natural world and human nature, finding their subjects in time, family, love, work, spirituality, redemption, and death. Using what X.J. Kennedy has called "a keen eye for unforgettable details, a masterly command of the language," Whitehead endeavours to find what lies beneath the surface, as in the title poem in which a young couple, refinishing a kitchen table to "remove the old layer of dark varnish," expose more than just the wood's grain. Perhaps just as important, this poet delights in the mystery of process as much as in the truth that is revealed.
