Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: A "re-vision" of Daphne Marlatt's landmark Vancouver Poems , taking into account the city's massive transformations in the forty-year interim. Codice inventario libreria
In her "re-vision" of Vancouver Poems, originally published in 1972, Daphne Marlatt's additional lyrics trace countless transformations of a West Coast port city. In Vancouver's fast-moving, realty-driven reality, global business is conducted over "liquid lunches" and in the midst of mounting social crises, including poverty, addiction, and homelessness.
Daphne Marlatt began her writing career at the center of the West Coast poetry movement of the 1960s, studying with many of Donald Allen's New American Poets, most notably Robert Creeley. Much of her postmodernist writing is attuned to the adjustments, struggles, and accomplishments of immigrants.
Daphne Marlatt was born in Melbourne in 1941 and spent much of her childhood in Malaysia before emigrating to Canada in 1951. Marlatt was at the centre of the West Coast poetry movement of the 1960s, studying at the University of British Columbia and with many of Donald Allen?s New American Poets, most notably Robert Creeley. Much of her postmodernist writing would be attuned to the adjustments, struggles, and accomplishments of immigrants. While Marlatt attended UBC (1960-1964), her literary associations with the loosely-affiliated TISH group encouraged her non-conformist approach to language and etymological explorations.
She was the founding editor of two literary magazines: periodics and Tessera. She co-edited West Coast Review, Island, The Capilano Review, and TISH. In 2004 she was appointed as the first writer-in-residence at Simon Fraser University in three decades. She currently co-directs the annual Banff Writing Studio.
Her early writing includes prose narratives on the Strathcona neighborhood of Vancouver and of the former Japanese-Canadian fishing village of Steveston, and several poetry books. Selected Writing: Network is a collection of her prose and poetry, published in 1980. More of her writing can be found in The New Long Poem Anthology: 2nd Edition (2000), edited by Sharon Thesen. Daphne Marlatt?s This Tremor Love Is (2001) is a memory book – an album of love poems spanning twenty-five years, from her first writing of what was to become the opening section, A Lost Book, to later, more recent sequences.
Marlatt has been a featured poet on the Heart of a Poet series, produced in conjunction with Bravo! TV. Her recent work includes The Gull, the first Canadian play staged in the ancient, ritualized tradition of Japanese Noh theatre, and winner of the prestigious 2008 Uchimura Naoya Prize.
In 2006, Marlatt was appointed to the Order of Canada in recognition of a lifetime of distinguished service to Canadian culture. In 2009, she was awarded the Dorothy Livesay Prize for Poetry, for her innovative long poem The Given, and in 2012 she received the George Woodcock Lifetime Achievement Award.
