Durell Smith | Purge | Marred By The Sun | Poetry Book
The Hanging Rose Press
Marred By The Sun is the most recent collection from Edmonton poet, Durell Smith. 100 pages of original poems dealing with grief, depression, toxic masculinity, and overcoming. The book starts low and carries the reader through the personal trials of Smith, navigating through the messy mind of the poet, eventually leading to what most wish for in a bleak cycle. Acceptance of who they are, the worth of self, and the crutch of negativity. Published by the Calgary/Halifax label Aught\Void, Marred By The Sun is a companion to a bad day and an example of how pessimism is not permanent.
