Hand Luggage: A Memoir in Verse - neues Buch

ISBN: 9780889842885

ID: 978088984288

It has become customary in Canada to describe P. K. Page as `distinguished'', but that epithet betrays her. P. K. Page is simply too vivacious, too cunning, too elusive, to be monumentalized. She is in fact the supreme escape artist of our literature. Try to confine her in a villanelle and she scampers off into free verse. Peg her as a prose poet and she springs forth with a glosa. Categorize her as a poet who writes fiction but then note that you find very little `poet''s prose'' in her stories. Her characters are often incised with acid and a cruelly keen burin. She is the shrewdest of observers but at the same time she celebrates life, low and high, in all its manifestations. One of the finest and most distinctive Canadian poets, P. K. Page is no provincial. She is a citizen not merely of the world, but of the earth. Starting in Calgary in the twenties, the young P K Page discovered first horses and then the pre-Raphaelites in cheap reproductions. In the thirties it was London, then back to the Maritimes and war and the distance of accented radio broadcasts from overseas. In the forties, in Montreal, there was snow as high as a house, cocoa at Murray''s on Sherbrooke Street and poems by Frank Scott and Abe Klein read aloud in rented rooms.In the fifties, marriage to Arthur Irwin and thence to Australia by steamer via Aden, Port Said and Ceylon. Kangaroos and platypus and tea with the wives of diplomats. Perth to Melbourne by train. Alice Springs, Kalgoorli and Ayers Rock. Briefly, New Guinea. Then Brazil, a pet marmoset christened B Fledermouse and drinks with Margot Fonteyn on the beach at Copacobana. From the sublime, to the ridiculous -- an honour guard of mariachis poised to greet John Diefenbaker in the shadow of Popocatepetl. The posting to Mexico was the last.Her memoir ranges from the trivial – the condition of pipes and wiring in embassy homes – to the profound, her persistent search for spiritual certainty. P. K. Page met many of the dominant figures of the twentieth century, including Nehru, DeGaulle, Mountbatten, Tito and the Kennedys. But above all, she celebrates the senses, the beauty of it all.Towards the end of a long and passionate life, Page shares in a most engaging form the highlights of a life lived to the full. P. K.

Hand Luggage - signiertes Exemplar

2006, ISBN: 0889842884

Taschenbuch, Erstausgabe, ID: 671436670

[EAN: 9780889842885], Libro nuovo, [SC: 10.02], [PU: Erin, Ontario, Canada: Porcupine's Quill], THE PORCUPINE'S QUILL, P K PAGE, CANADIAN POETRY, MEMOIRS, Poetry|Canadian, Poetry|General, Biography & Autobiography|Literary, Original printed wraps. 96 pp. Octavo. `Riffing on memory: that is PK Page's method in Hand Luggage, a wonderful long poem nobody else could have written, meaning the original form as well as the autobiographical content. Some events are told out of chronological sequence; some minor characters -- a marmoset is one -- admittedly claim disproportionate space. The reader is relieved of much that a conventional autobiography would plod through. Hand Luggage carries a plentitude of penetrating observations and probing questions arising from richly varied cultural experience frankly and lovingly examined. It is a progression of incandescent moments caught in a poetic voice both assured and unassuming. `Thank God for my eye, my insatiable eye,' says PK Page, `it has seen me through much.' That sharp eye, always searching after vision, sees a reader through this book too, this surprising verse memoir of a `borderland being' deeply pondering her life in society and in art.' -- Stan Dragland Printed offset by Tim Inkster on the Heidelberg KORD at the printing office of the Porcupine's Quill in the Village of Erin, Wellington County, Ontario, Canada. Smyth sewn into 16-page signatures with hand-tipped endleaves front and back.
