Trinity: Tribute Sequences, for Robert Graves
Sean Howard

2022 / Canadian Poetry / $23.95
9781554472420 / Trade paper / 128 pp

Trinity uses experimental techniques such as collage, cut-up, erasure, and the (re)mixing of texts to explore three landmark works by the poet, novelist, and iconoclastic scholar Robert Graves: The White Goddess, The Greek Myths, and the famous Great War memoir Goodbye to All That. Inspired by Graves’s commitment to working with the “broken images” of a shattered world, Howard’s interlocking, dreamscape sequences pay creative tribute to the fierce, questing faith at the heart of the texts: a defiant fidelity to the deep, magical logic and restorative power of poetry and myth, even in an age of mass destruction, war on nature and perverted ‘progress.’
