Wow, the new Pacific Poetries issue of The Capilano Review is a Talon showcase!
This is the first issue of the Cap Review that is published under its own auspices, after a successful crowd-funding campaign in 2014 to save the magazine, and we are glad to see TCR celebrating its locus and its locality.
A number of Talon authors and books are mentioned, we are also glad to see:
- Jordan Abel opens the issue with his piece “pacific ocean” (pages 6–8).
- Pages 55–9 is an exploration of Nicola Harwood and Fred Wah’s interactive poem website, High Muck a Muck: Playing Chinese.
- Wah’s own poem, “Richmond,” is featured on pages 60 and 61.
- A new poem by Garry Thomas Morse, “Prairie Harbour” (the title poem from his forthcoming book of poetry) is featured on pages 111-5.
- Daphne Marlatt’s poem, “peripherals,” may be found on page 125.
- On pages 130-1, read an insightful review by Ted Byrne of Sharon Thesen and Ralph Maud’s collected letters of Charles Olson and Frances Boldereff, After Completion (2014).
