In a series of eight plays that have together come to be called The Arctic Cycle, playwright Chantal Bilodeau explores the effects of climate change on the eight countries in the Arctic Circle. The cycle of plays begins in northern Canada with Sila, which will be published this fall.
In anticipation of the publication of Sila, we asked: what does “sila” mean? And why is it the right title for this play?
English-Inuktitut translator Janet Tamalik McGrath has provided the answers. She shared with us an article she co-wrote recently with other Canadian scholars which explains the significance of the term and poses questions about the nature of climate change discourse in Canada – a purpose shared by the play Sila.Thursday September 3, 2015 in Meta-Talon
“The Kropotkin Poems” is a book or sequence of poems about the Russian anarchist Peter Kropotkin that the Canadian poet Phyllis Webb did not write; they exist only as a 1967 grant proposal and several fragmentary poems (some titled “Poems of Failure”) that lie in the long gap between Webb’s 1965 Naked Poems and 1980’s Wilson’s Bowl.
In this blog by poet and professor Stephen Collis, read about a recent meeting of the minds: himself and Webb, discussing Kropotkin and poetry.
