Stupidity of Fuck

The Stupidity of Fuck: A Collection of Poems by Charles Taylor 
Paperback, 2017 

The 44 poems in The Stupidity of Fuck takes us on a journey to many places and times, whether small town Saskatchewan of the 1960s, or urban places like Toronto of the 2000s. They are people disenfranchised, poetic losers (the likes of whom Tennessee Williamscould have aptly portrayed), and others who are trying to understand sexuality while dwelling in a world that is oftentimes superficial and intimidating. These poems are invariably satirical, humorous, profane and sometimes tragic. But all are powerfully written and have a sense of place and identity that makes them truly unique. 

Charles Taylor was born on a farm in northwestern Saskatchewan. His formative years were spent in the Battlefords; later, he moved to Saskatoon and attended the University of Saskatchewan, majoring in English Literature and minoring in Fine Art. Since 1987 he has lived in Toronto. For his livelihood he has a painting/renovation company. In his spare time, he writes poetry and prose, is a photography, and creates fine art.
