Description - Admission Requirements by Phoebe Wang

A debut collection from a startling new voice in Canadian poetry.
The poems of Admission Requirements attempt to discover what is required of us when we cut across our material and psychic geographies. Simultaneously full and empty of its origins, the self is continually taxed of any certainties and ways of being. The speaker in these poems is engaged in a kind of fieldwork, surveying familiar and foreign places, gardens, communities and the haphazard cityscape, presenting the reader with uncomfortable truths and the many paradoxes of subsumed histories. With understated irony and unsettling imagery, the poems address the internal conflicts inherent in contemporary living.
