Writing the Tides free pdf Speaking of Kevin Roberts, the Australian writer Nigel Krauth says, "Roberts takes the common mans point of view and proves that humanity is still connected to the great turning of the universe". Certainly these "New and Selected Poems" provide ample evidence of Roberts sense of connectedness, as he selects the best from his previous eleven books of poetry and shows that for over thirty years he has been one of the more powerful voices on the Canadian scene. Like Ted Hughes, Roberts frequently employs strong images of the countryside to explore the human condition -- as in his earliest volume, Cariboo Fishing Notes (1973), where he works the trout streams of the Cariboo for what the art of fishing reveals of philosophical stances. Roberts also explores the work culture of Canadas resource economy, as in Deep Line which tells of skippering a salmon trolling boat and "deep lining" the fish. In Sneymos, Roberts widens his themes to document in poetic terms the coal! mining history of Nanaimo and the effect mining had on the aboriginal people of the area. Stonefish takes Roberts into new territory in Tahiti, with a sequence of poems based on the life of Gauguin.
