Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jason Christie is eben weirder than I am. That doesn't happen a lot. If you let him in your home he will seduce and abandon your DVD player, and get in all your LCD clocks arguing with each other. But by then you won't mind. This is why mother warned me about robot poetry." - Spider Robinson

About the Author

Jason Christie is considered one of Canada's cutting-edge poets and is, perhaps, one of the most important poets of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. His avant-garde style challenges the status quo and questions what a poem may be. i-ROBOT Poetry by Jason Christie illuminates his highly intelligent, satirical and somewhat whimsical, alternative style.

Watch this humorous and thought-provoking animated BookShort and you'll never look at your blow-dryer, toaster or TV in the same way again! This animated film, i-ROBOT Poetry, delivers a unique social commentary through the eyes of robots around us. An animated short drawn and directed by Lisa Mann, animated by Frantic Films, based on the delightful prose poetry of author Jason Christie.

I'm not always one for poetry. I am, however, always one for robots. These little poems are filled with an enlightened yet whimsical view of how robots do or will fit into our existence. Each one of these beauties is a world of it's own, filled with promise and delight. In fact you may have to read one and wait to digest it properly until you hurl yourself into the next. Each one will leave you a little different, a little better. Jason Christie is a poet of our times, and maybe future times. I've no doubt, when you read this, you will love it.

Format: Paperback
"I-Robot" is a fascinating and entertaining collection of poetry about robots and their relationships to humans. This unique compilation provides superbly crafted verse that takes on issues that are the subject of many a SciFi novel, film, and television episode. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, "I-Robot" is especially recommended to anyone who has every contemplated the role of robots and artificial intelligence in our lives and in our culture, now and in the future. 'Scary Robot Lullaby': Go to sleep. Go to sleep. Go to sleep little/robot and dream rotten dreams of rotten flesh/that will never, ever be yours. Close your eyes,/close your eyes, imagine you have closed/your eyes. There's an end to the sentence./Power down. Softly, power down. Of being/a robot. Of being a robot no more can be said/than sleep is a natural state. Pretend sleep is a natural state. Shhhh. Now go to sleep.
