Inhaltsangabe: All of Gary Botting's published poems have been brought together for the first time in this wonderful volume. Half a century ago the author pioneered the use of shaped poetry to achieve visual effects and the sensation of vertigo. Most of his published poems push the boundaries of accepted poetic and linguistic structure and thematic acceptability, and in this sense are experimental, including those from his most recent collection Isabeau: Poems of Lust and Love (2013). Streaking! The Collected Poems of Gary Botting also features thought-provoking haikus, sonnets, odes and ballads, and includes his full-fledged poetic drama, Prometheus Rebound. The poet explores themes of unabashed sexuality, as well as more innocent themes of nature. "His sense of humour - rare in Canadian poets - giggles across the page," says one critic. Born in England, Gary Botting is the author of more than 30 books. As a teenager, he won top honours at the U.S. National Science Fair and travelled around the world with his exhibit on the hybridization of giant silk moths. He began writing at age 18 as a journalist for the South China Morning Post in Hong Kong. Returning to Canada, he became a playwright, following in the footsteps of his mentor, Robertson Davies. He holds nine degrees, including two Ph.D.s (in English literature and law) and an MFA in playwriting. Formerly a professor of English and creative writing at several Canadian universities, and more recently a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle, he currently practices extradition law in Vancouver, British Columbia.
