Trent Arthur interviews Jeramy Dodds

Poet Jeramy Dodds speaks to the Arthur (his alma mater, Trent University's paper) about Crabwise to the Hounds ('It is both my oldest work and my newest, due to an unrestrained addiction to editing'), the influence of southern Ontario landscapes on the images in his book and more. But don't get your hopes up -- Dodds saves his writing advice for 'highly-motivated shut-ins or terrorists.'

Quill & Quire praises Crabwise to the Hounds

By Mark Callanan
Quill & Quire
December 1 2008

Despite my abiding conviction that a moratorium should be placed on poems about Glenn Gould (whose frequent appearance in Canadian poetry has made him into something of a verse cliché), I feel bound to admit that Jeramy Dodds imbues the clutch of Gould poems in his first collection with the same idiosyncratic brilliance that the famed concert pianist injected into his own art.
