Description

In the followup to the 2002 Governor-General's Award winner Surrender, Roy Miki extends his exploration of the margins joining social and individual language, and of layers of history overlaying places. Canada, Asia, Europe provide the local conditions where the authorial "i" engages with globalization, with the collision between otherness and spatialization. The serial poems comprising There contain a multiplicity of voices drawn from those the poet hears in conversation, advertising, historiography and scientific proceedings, and incorporate photos and photomontages.
