"If the loitersacke be gone springing into a taverne, I'll fetch him reeling out." "Loitersack" is 17th century slang for a lay-abed, a lazybones. In his new book, Loitersack, Donato Mancini (You Must Work Harder to Write Poetry of Excellence, Bookthug, 2012) extends his inquiry of Canadian poetry and poetics in the form of a book that contains poetry, poetics, theory, theory theatre, and laugh particles. In many ways a companion piece to You Must Work Harder, Loitersack works through some of the problems and questions Mancini posed in that work, a more manifest (if not traditional) work of criticism. Loitersack is in some senses a commonplace book — a scrapbook of borrowed quotations — in other senses it is the poet's personal book of critical reflections, describing a broad topography of poetic knowledge. Like all Mancini's work, it's wired for explosive laughter; and as in all his previous work, Mancini sets out to write a book unlike anything else he — or anyone else, for that matter — has ever read.

Writer / critic / visual artist Donato Mancini is the author of You Must Work Harder to Write Poetry of Excellence (2012), Buffet World (2010), Fact 'N' Value (2010), Æthel (2008), and Ligatures (2005). The Hamilton, ON native lives in Vancouver, where he enrolled in the PhD program at the University of BC.
