From Albrecht to Zieroth

October 20th, 2014

Foreign artwork and unfamiliar music can be an elixir for creativity, and so David Zieroth has responded to great artists such as W.H. Auden, James Joyce and Albrecth Durer for an autobiograhpical travelogue, Albrecht Durer and Me: Travels, 2004 to 2014 (Harbour $18.95). Zieroth tempers the highs and lows of wanderlust with “knowledge that can only arrived at by leaving home.” Art, music, history, war and architecture inspire poems rife with evocative imagery, sensory detail and Zieroth’s customary humility. David Zieroth formerly published as Dale Zieroth. In 1999 he won the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize for How I Joined Humanity at Last (Harbour). Ten years later he won the Governor General’s Literary Award for Poetry for his eighth collection, The Fly in Autumn (Harbour).978-1-55017-674-2
