Ossabaw by Dr. David Hamilton
Book DescriptionBelieving in invention as the art of finding things, David Hamilton has been concerned with finding what, in memory, in nature, in his reading, and in daily events, suggests a poem. Some of the results are "found poems" in the strict sense, as he samples and refashions existing texts; other poems in this remarkable book could be said to be found in the extended sense of being discovered in memory or by observation. Comprising free verse lyrics as well as poems in recognizable forms, Hamilton demonstrates an extraordinary range, including a series of upside down sonnets, "upsodounnets" as Chaucer might have said. The long title poem carries finding to an extreme as Hamilton condenses journal entries to a collage of lyrical notes. Observation of nature is a primary subject, but not far behind comes material from daily life and the world of art - from paintings and from other texts, both early and recent.

At 22 the young Loyalist David Hamilton was locked into a powerful cycle of paramilitary violence from which release seemed unthinkable. He would know what - and often who - was behind that news item: his own barrister told David he was lucky to get only 11 years. This title shows how fraught with danger quitting a terrorist group can be.
