George Whipple is a British Columbia poet, a blue collar
philosopher, who challenges us with questions that on the surface
seem simple and straightforward, but are far more complex when you
push on into the poems. In the background to his philosophical soul
searching are the ordinary people and places that inhabit his
Whipple's poetry is more traditional, often based on what he
terms "metaphysical conceits" controlled by uniform stanzas and
off-rhyme. He writes that his poetry is "a balance of contrary
forces: ardor/order, rhetoric/slang, enlightenment/delight,
pictures painted on sounds. Mixing every kind of meter, line
length, pace and pitch, helping them find their voice, I try to
create that variety in unity which changes boring excitement into
the passionate calm of art."
