"What Does a House Want?" affirms Gary Geddes's place as one of the premier Canadian poets of his generation. He talks about his writing at 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 4, at Village Books, 1200 11th St.

Equally at home with the lyric and the long poem, Geddes brings his "deadly accuracy in language and form" and his no-holds-barred style to bear on multinationals, Israeli-Palestinian violence, the guilt of Leon Trotsky, POWs, assassins, mad-bombers, China's bloody Emperor Qin Shihuang, and the reputation of Ezra Pound.
