Phil Hall: A widened field of signification


Please check out my entry on poet Phil Hall for the Canadian Encyclopedia.

An excerpt:

“In the pivotal collection Hearthedral: A Folk-Hermetic (1996), Phil Hall’s poetic shift becomes more apparent. It shows his transition from relatively accessible poetry using colloquial realism into more complex language reminiscent of James Joyce’s wordplay in Finnegans Wake and Gerard Manley Hopkins’ richly descriptive poetry. . . .”
