Stephen Bett’s new book of poetry, S PLIT, is divided into three sections: “Split-Up” concerns relationship; “Split-All-Over” is fueled by angst and the poet’s customary satire; “Split-Down” makes a tender good-bye to a marriage. This is a deeply personal book: poet “split” all over the emotional map.
These poems “are
soooo delicious. Mouthwatering. Tingling....so bitter, so sharp, so sad.
Such beautiful work. I am absolutely stunned.”
Stephen Bett has had
six previous books of poetry published — Sass ’n Pass,
Three Women, Nota Bene, High-Maintenance, Cruise Control (Ekstasis
Editions) and Lucy Kent and other poems (Longspoon Press) —
along with a chapbook, High Design Refit (Greenboathouse Books).
He is a member of the English Department at Langara College in Vancouver.
