Description

«Hero of the Play a changé ma vie, » déclarait Richard Harrison en 2004 dans l'édition 10e anniversaire de ce recueil de poèmes. Au cours des quinze dernières années, il a publié deux autres recueils: Worthy of His Fall et On Not Losing My Father's Ashes in the Flood qui a obtenu le Prix littéraire du Gouverneur général. Pourtant ses poèmes de hockey ont continué à s'écrire, se récrire, se réimaginer, et 25: Hockey Poems, New and Revised a été lancé dans le cadre du festival Wordfest de Calgary en octobre 2019. La traduction de Gilles Mossière parue en novembre de la même année – 25: Poèmes de hockey, Inédits et revisités – est le premier recueil de Richard Harrison à être traduit en français.

«Hero of the Play changed my life,» wrote Richard Harrison in the 10th anniversary edition of that book in 2004. That change has brought two more books of poetry in the 15 years since: Worthy of His Fall and the Governor General's Award–winning On Not Losing My Father's Ashes in the Flood. But all the while, his hockey poems kept writing, rewriting, and reimagining themselves. In October 2019, 25: Hockey Poems, New and Revised was launched at Calgary's Wordfest, and in November that year, Gilles Mossière launched 25: Poèmes de hockey, Inédits et revisités, Richard's first book to be translated in its entirety into French.
