Description

Acadie is a country which exists in the imagination and words of its people. Its literature is young; its poetry has emerged from sheer experimentation with language — both in its form and its content. But the poetry of Acadie is more than simply experimentation: it is also a political expression, an insistence on the very existence of an imaginative country. This is the first anthology of this type ever to be published in English.
