Assiniboia

Assiniboia

McClelland & Stewart Ltd | March 27, 2012 | 128 pages

From Governor General's Award-winning poet Tim Lilburn comes a new collection of poetry of great scope and ambition. Assiniboia is a richly textured imagining of a Western Canada that could have been. Theatrical, operatic -- a masque and a pair of choral performances -- the book breaks new formal ground in Canadian poetry. The huge spectacle of Tim Lilburn's eighth collection gives us a new land peopled by figures from the visionary governments of Louis Riel and from the western mysticism, as well as land forms with the power of speech, all acting together as a kind of ghostly army bent on overturning more than a century of colonial practice.
