Joseph A. Dandurand

"How does the Romantic keep on if he's a contemporary First Nations guy? Like the poet Dandurand. There's an honesty that gets bare bones scary in some of these free verse poems. But I rage / and this is the same poem / over and over / repeated / to an empty page. He writes about the woman or women, about being an Indian on a reserve, about heritage and bad histories and children and about his own troubled mid-life, but thanks to the clarity, often irony of his vision, our awkward humanity speaks through." — Daniel David Moses (From Leaf Press)
