qNoble's work has always engaged, in its own way, with the Western Canadian tradition of poetry as intellectual experiment grounded on local experience. Death Drive marks a counter-turn in the work of one of Southern Alberta's most distinctive writers.q - Chris Jennings, Department of English, University of Ottawa In this collection of poetry, Charles Noble further reins in an already tight form - haiku - only to let loose a qlogopoeicq poetry. He presents poems of extraordinary rigour and riddles of wit that are solved by qlifetimeq insights - a dialectical poetry that still observes a phenomenological toehold but transcends the limits of locality in recognizing the curled-up-but-everywhere world of media and markets - Ai la Fredric Jameson. And yet, these qhaikusq go straight - to qthe shock of the naAmve.q They turn to a middle ground, in Aristotle's sense of difficult target. They point to human acts, human reactions, and enact, themselves, a meta-linguistic wrestling, at one with the quarreling couple in the bar hanging on each other's words and insistent with qwhat do you mean by [a simple word]?q But they are also implicated in what he calls the death drive (not death wish), which arcs freely over a human life span - think architecture - and which, more radically, in the qpleated-crossword, q qmake's good// a/ bit/ of/ bad/ infinity, q no expenses, save for that toehold, earth, as he would have it.II Series: Open spaces (Calgary, Alta.) ; 4 PS8577.O32D42 2006 C811a#39;.54 C2006-905365-0 Cover design aamp; photography, Melina Cusano.
