George Elliott Clarke: Book Launch
November 2, 2022, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM EDTFree
Join Guernica Editions for George Elliott Clarke’s CANTICLES III (MMXXII) book launch on November 2nd at 7 PM. This is a free event. Special thank you to Motion for moderating.
Acclaimed for his narrative lyric suites (Whylah Falls and Execution Poems), his lyric “colouring books” (Blue, Black, Red, and Gold), his selected poems (Blues and Bliss), his opera libretti and plays (Beatrice Chancy and Trudeau: Long March, Shining Path), George Elliott Clarke now presents us with his epic-in-progress, Canticles, a work that views History as a web of imperialism, enslavement, and insurrection. A native Africadian, Canada’s 7th Parliamentary Poet Laureate ranges the atlas and ransacks the library to ink lines unflinching before Atrocity and unquiet before Oppression.
