By Adam Dickinson
In Cartography and strolling, Adam Dickinson charts his personal listening -- an acute listening of eye and ear, a listening with either physique and brain. "Cartography" is greater than a metaphor for him, it is a approach of being. it's how we live on this planet, and the way intimacy enriches such living. but "cartography" is the presiding metaphor, the constitution of this e-book; in giving it any such position, Dickinson reminds the reader of that very human impulse to plan, to visualize. each one poem is itself a type of mapping, via language and sound, via minute commentary, until eventually land, love, and daily life are given new embodiment, are newly stumbled on, and a reader reveals new nations in surprisingly wide-spread settings.
