Clinical Studies

Lewd, loving, delicately crafted, the poems of Clinical Studies focus on the processes we live by, both of the body and the heart — be it the birth of a child, the death of a parent, or the joys and pitfalls of the flesh. With unstinting clarity, candour, and wit, George Slobodzian’s work partakes in the ongoing exploration and celebration of being that is lyrical poetry.

Critical Comment

“George Slobodzian is ... an unillusioned materialist, ... pungent, funny, and visceral.... Slobodzian exuberantly affirms 'this wretched world.' Overhearing teens filling out a Cosmopolitan questionnaire, he realizes that 'love must be / a stalwart beast / to haul such crap / and remain intact.' Graphic, profane, and caustic, Clinical Studies ... is in fact a tender book, children, parents, extended relations, and lovers filling its pages with their heat.”

— Andre Furlani, Canadian Literature, 2004
