During the groundbreaking Charles Edenshaw exhibition at the Vancouver Art Gallery in 2013, poet Colin Browne found himself returning often to study three large argillite (slate) platters carved by the Haida master in the late 1800s. Browne has since authored Entering Time: The Fungus Man Platters of Charles Edenshaw, an exploration of the art, history, and folklore behind Edenshaw’s platters. In this newly published book, Browne ranges through the fields of art history, literature, ethnology, and myth to discover a parallel history of modernism within one of the world’s most subtle and sophisticated artistic and literary cultures. On Meta-Talon today, we share selections from Chapters Five and Six of Entering Time.Friday November 25, 2016 in Meta-Talon

Recently Canada and the world lost another literary and musical luminary, Leonard Cohen. Cohen and Fitzgerald had a friendship of many years and occasionally collaborated. On Meta-Talon, enjoy two poems from Impeccable Regret collection, in fond remembrance of both Cohen and Fitzgerald.
