Fred Wah’s collected earlier works (1962–1991) can be found in one elegant volume, Scree, which has arrived from the press and is now available! Order your copy today for $49.95.
Fred Wah’s career has spanned six decades and a range of formal styles and preoccupations. Scree collects Wah’s concrete and sound poetry of the 1960s, his landscape-centric work of the 1970s, and his ethnicity-oriented poems of the 1980s. Fred was a founding member of the avant-garde TISH group, which helped turn Canadian poetry, in the West in particular, to a focus on language. Most of Wah’s early work is out of print. This collection allows readers to (re)discover this groundbreaking work.
Scree launched to a large, enthusiastic audience in late October this year, and you are invited to watch the video of the launch.
