Poetry. While incorporating photos and photomontages, Roy Miki's THERE explores the mergins connecting social and individual language. Canada, Asia, and Europe provide the local conditions where the authorial "i" engages both with globalization and with the collision between otherness and spatialization. THERE explores the margins connecting social and individual language, echoing a multiplicity of voices drawn from conversation, advertising, historiography and scientific proceedings. Miki's 2002 book Surrender won the Governor-General's Award. This is his fourth book of poetry.
