Steveston

Daphne Marlatt & Robert Minden

A new edition of this beloved favourite by two of Canada’s finest poets and photographers, with a new poem by Marlatt based on present-day Steveston and nine additional photos by Minden from his original portfolio — never before published. Marlatt’s long-running line offers a superb recreation of the Japanese-Canadian fishing village at the mouth of the Fraser River, and Minden’s art-quality photos, presented on the finest paper, allow one almost to touch the people.

Steveston has already become a Canadian classic.”

Rilke’s Late Poetry

Selected for Granger’s Index to Poetry

DUINO ELEGIES, THE SONNETS TO ORPHEUS AND SELECTED LAST POEMS

Translated from the German with an Introduction and Commentary by Graham Good

The first translation in a single volume of Rilke’s three mature works, with a critical introduction and an extensive commentary on each of the poems by Graham Good.

“Graham Good’s translations of Rilke read like fresh, original poems. Good has heard and obeyed Pound’s rallying cry of ‘Make it new!’ — and now he offers to restore us, as Rilke would restore us, through the poise and passion of his language.”

Runaway Dreams

Winner, George Ryga Award for Social Awareness

Richard Wagamese

Having gained an impressive reputation for his novels and nonfiction as a Native writer who explores contemporary First Nations life, Richard Wagamese now presents a debut collection of stunning poems. He shows us Canada as seen through the eyes and soul of a well-worn traveller, with his love of country, his love of people.

“Richard Wagamese is equally comfortable and impressive writing about nature, love, jazz, spirituality, or the brutality of residential schools.”
