In February of 1970, Thomas Lynch, aged twenty-one, bought a one-way ticket to Ireland. He landed in the townland of Moveen, at the edge of the ocean in West Clare, outside the thatched cottage that his great-grandfather had left late in the nineteenth century with a one-way ticket to America. Tommy and Nora Lynch, Thomas Lynch's elderly, unmarried, distant cousins welcomed the young American 'home'. In the words of the author, 'it changed my life'. Booking Passage is part travelogue, part cultural study, part memoir and elegy, part guidebook for what Lynch calls 'fellow pilgrims' working their way through their own and the larger histories. It is a magnificent hymn of praise to Ireland.

Booking Passage

Opening the book with "Jewish Journeys," Ezrahi begins by examining the work of medieval Hebrew poet Yehuda Halevi to chart a journey whose end was envisioned as the sublime realignment of the people with their original center.

Sidra DeKoven Ezrahi's sweeping study of modern Jewish writing is in many ways a long meditation on the thematics of geography in Jewish culture, what she calls the "poetics of exile and return." Until the late nineteenth century, Jews were identified in their own religious and poetic imagination as wanderers and exiles, their sacred center–Jerusalem, Zion–fatefully out of reach. Opening the book with "Jewish Journeys," Ezrahi begins by examining the work of medieval Hebrew poet Yehuda Halevi to chart a journey whose end was envisioned as the sublime realignment of the people with their original center. When the Holy Land became the site of a political drama of return in the nineteenth century, Jewish writing reflected the shift, traced here in the travel fictions of S.Y. Abramovitsh, S.Y. Agnon, and Sholem Aleichem. In "Jewish Geographies" Ezrahi explores aspects of reterritorialization through memory in the post-Holocaust writing of Paul Celan, Dan Pagis, Aharon Appelfeld, I.B. Singer and Philip Roth. Europe, where Jews had dreamed of return, has become the new ruined shrine: The literary pilgrimages of these writers recall familiar patterns of grieving and representation and a tentative reinvention of the diasporic imagination–in America, of course, but, paradoxically, even in Zion.

How do you read a poem? This book, in a striking new approach to Canadian poetry, provides some annovative answers. Twenty-six critics - including Diana Brydon, Sandra Djwa, Laurie Ricou, Stephen Scobie, George Woodcock, and W.H. New - demonstrate ways to read individual poems by DionneBrand, Robert Bringhurst, Robert Kroetsch, Dorothy Livesay, Eli Mandel, Daphne Marlatt, Al Purdy, Phyllis Webb, and many others.The book includes the texts of such famous Canadian poems as Earle Birney's David, Margaret Atwood's Notes Towards a Poem that Can Never Be Written, A.M. Klein's Portrait of the Poet as Landscape, Irving Layton's Whatever Else Poetry Is Freedom, Archibald Lampman's The City of the End of Things,and A.J.M. Smith's The Lonely Land. Discussions of these and other works show how to read a poem for its political implications, how to place a poem in its social and historical contexts, how to examine the language and form of poetry, and how to consider a poem's ideas.Twenty-eight new poems - by some of Canada's leading contemporary writers, among them Lorna Crozier, Gary Geddes, Ralph Gustafson, Patrick Lane, Daniel David Moses, Erin Moure, P.K. Page, and Fred Wah - add to the volume's richness and its fascination.

"The fifteen women featured in this volume are some of the best writers currently engaged in avant-garde literary production, defining the contours of new movements and schools of writing. By showcasing their work alongside extensive interviews, Prismatic Publics stages intimate encounters with these key figures as they work in and against feminist, Language, conceptual, investigative and other poetic traditions - often across, between and at the interstices of genres." "Gathered in a single volume, these selections - some dating back to the early 1970s and others appearing in print for the first time - provide an opportunity to trace the diverse networks, influences, dialogues, dialectics and interventions that continue to make Canada's innovative womenwriters a powerful force in avant-garde writing around the world."--BOOK JACKET.
