Desire Lines: Essays on Art, Poetry & Culture
"My imagination carries my sight through the kaleidoscopic distance, falling away from what was a moment ago. Trees, bridges, water, and the changing animal clouds in the sky shift with the lights at the sides of the tracks and overpasses that temporarily mark all changing lines of sight."

Desire Lines is a collection of essays on art, poetry and culture--both high and low--gathered from the astute critical work of Toronto writer Ewan Whyte. Topics range from the influence of Plato on the poetry of Anne Carson to the influence of the cultural revolution on the art of Ai Weiwei; from his thoughts on an extreme American/Canadian mind control cult to the cultural implications of the cadaver plasticization work of Gunter von Hagens and the influence of violence as creation in the art of Viktor Mitic. Spontaneous and contemporary, these are essays for those who like to re-think.
