Nature by Mark Truscott


Nature by Mark Truscott


Nature is us and we are nature. Nature is out to kill us. Nature is heterosexual. Nature is gay. Nature is masculine. Nature is a woman. Nature is natural. Nature is culture. Nature is the nature of reality. Nature is a metaphor. Nature is like money. Nature is calling. Language is our nature. Few ideas today are as charged or subject to as many contradictory inflections as is nature.

To anchor its compositional investigations into its own material, Mark Truscott’s Nature considers the difficulties of this overdetermined concept and asks – without recourse to nostalgia, sanctimony, or moralism – what kind of space it might meaningfully create or occupy.

Praise for Said Like Reeds or Things:

“Reading these poems, thinking about them, typing them up here excites me—this book as a whole makes me excited about poetry and all its possibility. I can’t think of a better accomplishment for a volume of verse.” — Ron Silliman

“full of lines sparse as recently clear-cut fields” — Travis V. Mason via Canadian Literature

Mark Truscott’s first book was Said Like Reeds or Things (2004). He lives in Toronto with his family.
