Ladonian Magnitudes

This is an experimentalist, gourmet poetic ‘cook book,’ full of bratwurst, currywurst, “perfect ripe tomatoes, soft white mozzarella in tiny bags like water balloons... lightly-frosted beer”– a mind feast, an epicurean smorgasbord, where, as Peter Dale Scott puts it, “vignettes of a drunken world from Europe to Saskatoon vie with a fine rendition from the Lyra Graeca.

In 1996, Swedish sculptor Lars Vilks founded the one square kilometre micro-nation Ladonia to protect his piece ‘Nimis’ from demolition by local authorities. Inspired by the same ‘anarchaesthetic’ spirit, Ladonian Magnitudes morphs the topography where poetic imagination meets realpolitik to inaugurate “a change of dimension / not just locale.”

Critical Comment

“Bryan Sentes is a heroic Pound-Joyce of the Google era. Polyglot, polymath, his imagination leaps in macaronic shifts from language to L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E. Vignettes of a drunken world from Europe to Saskatoon vie with a fine rendition from the Lyra Graeca, and far-out explorations of internet virtual space. At his best Sentes is brilliant, and the tone and the range of the whole book, from demotic to encyclopaedic, are a most welcome addition to Canadian letters.”

–Peter Dale Scott

“Fun, erudite, euphonious, and very engaging. A pleasure to read!”

–Robert Priest
