Pangborn Defence by Norm Sibum
Book DescriptionNorm Sibum's The Pangborn Defence marks a departure from his previous verse, and will be something of a surprise for those who have followed his career over the last thirty years. A suite of poems as letters to personages both real and imagined, there are political undertones to many rarely seen in Sibum's oeuvre. But there is still the same attention to detail, the same craftsmanship, humour, love and originality.

Books By Author Norm Sibum
Smoke and Lilacs, Paperback (February 2009)
Presents intimations of mortality and glances of humour, elegiac lyric playing against steely classicism, an easy modern vernacular eliding with timeless grace.
November Propertius, Paperback (August 1998)
Some of the speakers in this poetry collection are ancient, some modern, and all ask questions dictated by their situations in life and history. The characters are for the most part stoical and pessimistic, but their pessimism is remote from the cynicism and irony of our age.
