On the occasion of the press’s 40th anniversary in 2015, Brick Books is proud to present new editions of six classic books from the back catalogue. Each of these new editions includes a new introduction written by an esteemed Canadian poet or scholar. In addition, each author was given an opportunity to reflect, contextualize and elaborate on the composition and legacy of their book in an afterword. The series is designed by the world-renowned typographer Robert Bringhurst.
Riddle-poems that consist only of answers. Two-time Griffin Award winner Carson's first poetry collection.
A classic of Canadian wilderness writing — the tale of a man’s self-imposed isolation on an uninhabited island off Newfoundland’s northern shore.
The story of a passionate love affair, told in vintage Lee style - with whoops, deep chords and headlong improvisational arcs.
Marilyn Dumont’s Metis heritage offers her challenges that few of us welcome. Here she turns them to opportunities: in a voice that is fierce, direct, and true, she explores and transcends the multiple boundaries imposed by society of the self.
In Hard Light Michael Crummey retells and reinvents his father’s stories of outport Newfoundland and the Labrador fishery of a half century ago. Speaking through generations of storytellers, he conjures a world of hard toil and heavy weather, shot through with stoicism, grim humour, endurance, and love.
Complex, intricately textured and polyphonic, this sequence of five long poems enacts the fulfilment of poetry and philosophy in one another. Brick Books is pleased to introduce this new edition of Wittgenstein Elegies, which has been long out of print.
