FILE OF UNCERTAINTIES (poems)
Sono Nis Press, Vancouver, 1971.
“Intensely personal, File of Uncertainties is a beautifully
controlled and sustained statement of human helplessness. Consequently it is
also an uncomfortable, almost painful book. Nothing pretty or witty calls out
for applause. If you like your poetry to be a spectator sport, don’t bother.
You’ll get your mind bruised. “
Viveca Ohm, The Vancouver Sun.
“A rare poet of both the world and the mind. Strong, sharp,
truthful. Lines like ‘But I am, I have found/corruptible’ hit with a sting of
truth, a kind of revelational knife.” Willis Barnstone, poet/anthologist.
“Schroeder is undoubtedly one of the few real poets around
Vancouver today. What he read from File of Uncertainties was as cleanly precise
and vivid as we have come to expect from him.” Viveca Ohm, The Vancouver Sun.
