In "Crown and Ribs", Blaise Moritz's debut collection, the poet wanders the urban landscape singing hymns to work and creation. Proletarian heroes like Nova Scotian miner William Davis and oral historian Studs Terkel become characters on his journey through the urban, industrial and commercial landscape - a place where trees grow through fences distorting the property line and the reader's senses. The role of work and worker are the most significant subjects to a poet "haunted by waste," alongside a yearning for what is lost. His language is of the classical and the perishable; his twining, accomplished lines combine lucid detail and sheer, bold elegance, arriving at unexpected truths.
