9781771333375: Hearing Echoes

Poetry. Women's Studies. This collection of both narrative and lyrical poetry moves between two strong voices that resonate with and against one another, a woman and a man, focusing on family relationships in all their intersections and differences. The poems are about daughters, granddaughters, son, mothers, spouses, and deal with love, sorrow, joy, loss, redemption: the stuff of living. Weaving through the collection are the words and spirit of Virginia Woolf, who has affected and inspired both poets over the course of their writing, parenting, teaching, and being.

Review:

"This co-authored collection (by two already established and provocative poets) is seamless; refashioning themes and tropes from translucent prose by that arch feminist Virginia Woolf, woven by them into luminescent poetry.... The result is invention and intervention, a re-creative of her indomitable spirit...."
--Anne Burke, Chair, The Feminist Caucus of the League of Canadian Poets

"This book is a profound, moving, engaging read. This primal Papa and alma Mater sing sweetly, not in unison but in dialogue, recalling joys and pains of parenthood. Words awash in the love that holds families together resound with goodness and grief, through push and pull of personal relations, through happiness and hardship, responsibilities and regrets. Moreover, these poems let the language of children pervade the language of parents and grandparents: the words are fresh and revitalizing. Reading these poems is like gazing upon a core sample extracted from the depths of kinship. Their words glint and sparkle like flecks of mica, feldspar, rarest metals and crystals that grow under the intense pressure of weening, preening and setting free humanity."
-- Kedrick James, poet and scholar
