SELECTED POEMS OF FRANK PREWETT Picas Series No. 24 - Edited by Bruce Meyer and Barry Callaghan
Preface by Barry Callaghan
Introduction by Bruce Meyer

Frank "Toronto" Prewett was a Canadian poet. Born near Mount Forrest, Ontario, in 1893, probably of part-Iroquois stock, he was raised in Toronto and left in 1915 to fight in the First World War. Wounded and shell-shocked, he met Siegfried Sassoon while both were recuperating in a hospital in Scotland. Sassoon introduced him to a whole host of writers and encouraged Prewett to become a poet. In post-war England, Prewett became the toast of British literati and was known and fêted by the likes of Lady Ottoline Morrell, W.B. Yeats, Thomas Hardy, T.S. Elliot, Robert Gravesm Edmund Blunden, Virginia and Leonard Woolf, and Aldous Huxley, to name but few. He died in 1962 after a career as a broadcaster, editor, and teacher, virtually unknown in his native land.

SELECTED POETRY OF LOUIS RIEL • Picas Series No. 25
Translated by Paul Savoie
Edited by Glenn Campbell

Luis Riel, the compelling leader of the Metis, hanged by Sir John A. MacDonald’s government in 1885, sits at the core of the Canadian national imagination. Among partisans, he is either a poltroon or prophet, politically adept or an inept fool.
He was a visionary, and a very interesting poet, full of rancor and tenderness, self-pity and dignity. This is the first selection of his poetry to be published in this country in both French and English.

SELECTED VERSE OF THOMAS D’ARCY McGEE • Picas Series No. 26
Edited with an Introduction by Seán Virgo

The flamboyant Father of Confederation, best remembered today for his assassination in 1866, was as famous in his own time for his poetry as for his politics or journalism. Had he not died, he was to have been appointed Comptroller of Patents by the grateful Sir John A. Macdonald – a sinecure post, designed to give him the leisure to concentrate on his verse.
An Irish rebel who fled to freedom in the U.S., he found slavery instead and so moved north to Canada. McGee was a practical idealist of astounding energy. He created crusading newspapers in three countries, and became an ardent Canadian patriot – convinced that equality between races and sects had at last found a home. His best verse, as well as being technically superb, simmers with indignation. His attacks on privilege, his defence of the poor, and his vision of Canada as a champion of Peace, have recovered their timeliness today.
Seán Virgo’s introduction places McGee and his work in the context of their time, and re-evaluates the verse itself.

ASHES, ASHES, ALL FALL DOWN • Picas Series No. 27 - Zdena Salivarová
Translated by Jan Drábek

Ashes, Ashes, All Fall Down is a modern version of the Romeo and Juliet story – a tragic tale of love between a Czech girl and a Latvian basketball player.

"It is the sort of book I most enjoy – that in which the art conceals art – for it seems so spontaneous, so youthful and hopeful, yet it conveys so poignantly the innocence and pathos of youth." –Robertson Davies
"What’s described here so well – the explosion of adolescent love – takes on the dimension of tragedy." –Alice Munro
A little classic of a young girl in love." –Alan Sillitoe

FRAGILE MOMENTS • Picas Series No. 29 - Jacques Brault
Translated by Barry Callaghan

In light of an early winter’s white sun, a hand touches the sky’s emptiness: lovers who swore they would die together quietly separate. Great love seems like no love and yet the memory of that love persists. The wound will be shed and sadness will be tempered by the wry realization that we don’t often die.
As one of the most distinguished of contemporary Canadian writers, Jacques Brault has honed a vision of love and love lost out of "Mon Pays ne dans l’orpheliant de la neige."

THE GUID SISTERS • Picas Series No. 31
A Translation of Les Belles-Soeurs Into Modern Scots - Michel Tremblay
Translated by William Findlay and Martin Bowman

The Guid Sisters is a translation of Tremblay’s classic, Les Belles-Soeurs, into modern Scots. This play has been translated before, but only into a pallid approximation of the original joual. But Scots is an energetic and earthy vernacular with a distinctive sound system equal to joual. The play, a landmark in Canadian theatre, can now be truly appreciated in this superb translation, just as audiences in Glasgow and Moscow have learned to laugh with these ladies.

SIGNALS FOR SEERS • Picas Series No. 33 - Gilles Hénault
Translated by Ray Ellenwood

Signals for Seers is the first book-length selection in English of the poetry of Gilles Hénault. The title comes from Signaux pour les voyants; poems 1941-1962 but this collection spans forty years, giving a sampling of early and late work, including the famous long poem Semaphore (1962), and eight translations from À l’inconnue nue, a suite published in 1984.
This is a fine introduction to one of the most engaged and innovative poets among the crucial generation which emerged in Québec after the Second World War.

The rose window of wonder comes alive
for those who can see a crystal thephany dancing in air
the luckiest signs seem arcane
to snuffed eyes
But the guileless soul stamps its effigy on all things.
