The essays, poetry, and visual art collected here consider the more-than-human cultures of our multispecies world. At a time when humanity's impact has put our planet's ecosystems into great jeopardy, the book explores literary, sonic, and visual imaginaries that feature encounters between and across a variety of living creatures: beetles and bisons, people and pigeons, trees and spiderwebs, vegetables and violets, orchards and octopi, vampires and tricksters. Offering a wide range of critical and creative contributions to Human Animal Studies, Critical Plant Studies and the Nonhuman Turn, the volume seeks to foster new ways of imagining a more »response-able« coexistence on our shared Earth.

Native Poetry in Canada: A Contemporary Anthology is the only collection of its kind. It brings together the poetry of many authors whose work has not previously been published in book form alongside that of critically-acclaimed poets, thus offering a record of Native cultural revival as it emerged through poetry from the 1960s to the present. The poets included here adapt English oratory and, above all, a sense of play. Native Poetry in Canada suggests both a history of struggle to be heard and the wealth of Native cultures in Canada today.

A collection of poems that experiments with style and sound. It almost feels like you can touch the landscapes and embrace the world of a traveler. "I travel, I travel so many places, yet I always feel at home." The Overture Bird by Brian McSherry, currently living in Japan. A beautifully elevated poetry, suffused with love, Zen and the pouring rain. - John Sexson (Poetry Ireland News) McSherry carves words with a seasonal tension of fleetingness. A meditative echo unattached and refreshingly lacking any coterie and yet still the echo is mesmerizing, original and sharp. A gravitating, wind-influenced book that leaves words, images in the mind long after the pages are abandoned.
