The Innocent Traveller
Ethel Wilson

Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Precocious in childhood, irrepressible in old age, Miss Topaz Edgeworth’s singular accomplishment is to live out an entire century in unflagging – and mostly oblivious – optimism. At once outmoded and unconventional, tyrannical and benign, Topaz leads a largely unexamined life. But the magical quality of her consciousness, revealed through stunning narrative technique, makes her into one of the most delightful characters in Canadian literature. Published in 1949, The Innocent Traveller is Ethel Wilson’s most original literary achievement.

Reagan: A Life In Letters
Kiron K. Skinner
0743219678
October 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
Many books have been written about Ronald Reagan, but this collection of his letters must certainly be among the most varied and revealing about every aspect of the man. Organized by themes such as "Old Friends," "Running for Office," "Core Beliefs," "The Critics," and "Foreign Leaders," the book contains over 1,000 letters stretching from 1922 to 1994. Whether discussing economic policy with a political foe, dispensing marital advice, or sharing a joke with a pen pal, Reagan comes across as gracious, caring, and inquisitive. Even when responding to blistering criticism, he remained fair and thoughtful. As one would expect, many of the letters are addressed to world leaders, well-known American politicians, pundits, and journalists, and these are certainly interesting for their historical relevance and insights into Reagan's...

Brazilian Alphabet for the Younger Reader

June 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A charming alphabet book, beautifully illustrated, by one of Canada's most renowned poets. Ideal for very young children, and for P. K. Page fans of all ages.

But this isn't an ordinary alphabet book, filled with words we all know that go with things we see every day. This alphabet book is special. It's for children and adults who would like to tell a kamichi from a tatu. It speaks English, but it knows a few words of Portuguese. It's by P. K. Page, one of Canada's most celebrated poets. And it is illustrated with pictures that your great-great-grandmother might have seen as a child.

Page has used words that she remembers from her years in Brazil -- words that become refrains in her Brazilian Journal, words that were among the first Portuguese she learned. The illustrations are old...

·
 
Book Description
`It has become customary in Canada to describe P. K. Page as ``distinguished'', but that epithet betrays her. P. K. Page is simply too vivacious, too cunning, too elusive, to be monumentalized. She is in fact the supreme escape artist of our literature. Try to confine her in a villanelle and she scampers off into free verse. Peg her as a prose poet and she springs forth with a glosa. Categorize her as a poet who writes fiction but then note that you find very little ``poet's prose'' in her stories. Her characters are often incised with acid and a cruelly keen burin. She is the shrewdest of observers but at the same time she celebrates life, low and high, in all its manifestations. One of the finest and most distinctive Canadian poets, P. K. Page is no provincial. She is a citizen not merely of the world, but of the...

In Fine Form: The Canadian Book of Form Poetry
Kate Braid (Editor)
1551927772
September 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
A survey of Canadian poetic form, with hundreds of examples past and present, In Fine Form features the work of Robert Service, Margaret Atwood, Molly Peacock, Leonard Cohen, George Elliott Clarke, and other noted poets. Canada’s "form poetry" arises from the country’s distinct geography and cultural mix, with subjects ranging from physical work like farming and fishing, to the French influence, to more timeless natural and abstract themes. This anthology, beginning in the 16th century, is arranged by sections, one for each form, with a brief introduction to that form’s conventions and variations. The poems in each section appear chronologically (by birth date of poet) to show historical and modern examples that showcase the best the country has produced.
