Description

A stunning collection from Governor General’s Award winner Roy Miki, Flow presents all of this critically acclaimed writer’s poetry – from his collections Saving Face, Random Access File, Surrender, There, and Mannequin Rising – as well as a substantial chapter of new, previously unpublished works. Including a foreword by poet and critic Louis Cabri, extensive interviews with Miki by the collection’s editor, Michael Barnholden, and an exhaustive bibliography, Flow is the definitive edition of Miki’s work. Also included are numerous full-colour photographs and photocollages, a practice Miki has become increasingly drawn to in recent years; in the book’s previously published sections and in the much-anticipated section of brand-new work, Miki’s poems and photographic works engage in a mutually enriching dialogue.

A Member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia, and a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, Roy Miki is one of Canada’s preeminent poets; he is also an influential critic, founder of the literary journal Line, and noted activist, instrumental in the movement for Japanese Canadian redress. All of Miki’s roles and concerns coalesce and interpollinate in his perceptive poems, which remain precisely attuned to the complex relationships between race, language, and power as they map and interrogate the layers of history enfolded within place and identity.

This is the fourth volume in a new series of collected works published by Talonbooks. The first three are Phyllis Webb’s Peacock Blue: The Collected Poems, Fred Wah’s Scree: The Collected Early Poems, 1962–1991, and Daphne Marlatt’s Intertidal: The Collected Earlier Poems, 1968–2008.
