Carleton Wilson Reads in Toronto

Poet Carleton Wilson will read from his debut book, The Material Sublime, at the Hart House Library (7 Hart House Circle) in Toronto on Thursday, November 17th at 7pm.

The title of Carleton Wilson’s debut poetry book, The Material Sublime, contains an apparent contradiction that is central to the collection’s aim – to investigate how the intangible, spiritual sphere of existence is connected with the material world of nature and human society. With finely honed, immaculate craftsmanship and an extraordinary ability to observe and interpret minute details, Wilson brings to light the essential truth captured in this paradox. The considerable challenge Wilson undertakes in this collection is perfectly suited to his poetic abilities to articulate the nearly inexpressible meanings imbued in the most subtle, fleeting moments, and to do so with simplicity and elegance.
