Modernist Embraces. "Cut Lunch", by Chris Andrews and "Collage", by Peter Lloyd and "Itinerant Blues", by Samuel Wagan Watson. [review]
Samuel Wagan Watson and Peter Lloyd enjoy the contrast between citified sophistication and the detritus that accompanies it. There is plenty of energy in Watson’s work. Generally, the tone is more assured than in his first book. Peter Lloyd’s "Collages" is influenced by the Beat poets in its mix of Eastern and Western philosophies, and also employs many invented compound and hyphenated words. Chris Andrews’s "Cut Lunch" is full of dailiness and the casual habits of life.
