Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0969860692, Paperback)Poems about the land help us understand our native soil. Bringing together the Atlantic region’s finest poets, Landmarks provides readers with a bountiful harvest of poems on virtually every aspect of land and landscape, from a Prince Edward Island farm to a Gros Morne mountain, from a Fredericton woodlot to a Blomidon beach. All previously unpublished, these poems show in their range and depth of commitment how important the land has been and continues to be for the sustenance of body and soul. They express very personal visions of what land and landscape mean for the self, but, at the same time, they are wide awake to the region’s contemporary environmental predicaments. That the two are connected -- that caring for the land may mean taking care of it -- is just one of the insights to be gained from the volume. With over seventy poems by forty poets, Landmarks combines new poetic voices with an impressive line-up of seasoned writers, including Brian Bartlett, Lesley Choyce, Greg Cook, George Elliot Clarke, Fred Cogswell, Mary Dalton, David Helwig, Carole Glasser Langille, Ross Leckie, Joe Sherman, John Smith, John Steffler, and Liliane Welsh. The book includes a critical introduction and biographical notes on the poets.
