Product Description

From the Back Cover

Acadie is a country which exists in the imagination and words of its people. Its literature is young; its poetry has emerged from sheer experimentation with language — both in its form and its content. But the poetry of Acadie is more than experimentation: it is also a political expression, an insistence on the very existence of an imaginative country.

For this anthology — the first ever to be published in English — Fred Cogswell and Jo-Anne Elder have selected poems by Herménégilde Chiasson, Anne Cloutier, France Daigle, Ronald Després, Gérald LeBlanc, Raymond Guy Leblanc, Dyane Léger, Roméo Savoie and more then twenty other poets to put together a collection of the most contemporary of Acadian poetry.

About the Author

Jo-Anne Elder is a writer and translator who lives in Fredericton, N.B. Her translations and critical essays have been published in Ellipse, Canadian Literature, and Voix et Images.

Fred Cogswell was a widely published poet, translator, anthologist, reviewer, and critic. He was the founder of Fiddlehead Poetry Books, one of the oldest literary presses in Canada.
