AFTER EXILE Poems - Raymond Knister
Edited by Gregory Betts

This is the first reprint of Knister’s verse in over 20 years. It represents a major step forward, collecting dozens of poems for the first time in book form, and printing 30 more poems, on top of numerous letters and prose pieces, for the first time ever. The title After Exile is plucked from Knister’s long poem written after he returned from Chicago and decided to become the unthinkable: a modernist Canadian writer. Knister, writing in the 20s and 30s, could barely get his poems published in Canada, but magazines like This Quarter (Paris), Poetry (Chicago), Voice (Boston), and The Dial (New York City), eagerly printed what he sent, and always asked for more, and the more of what he had – all of it – is in this book. Exile Editions brings together all the known poems of Raymond Knister and offers a peek into the world in which they were created.

IRREALITIES, SONNETS & LACONICS Poems - W.W.E. Ross
Edited with an Introduction by Barry Callaghan with the assistance of Gregory Betts

The poetry of William Wrightson Eustace Ross spans over forty years. The poet was born in Peterborough, Ontario, in 1894, worked as a geophysicist at the University of Toronto, married the well-known journalist, Mary Lowrey Ross, and died in Toronto in 1966. Ross’s work was published in The Dial – he was one of the few poets whose poems the editor, Marianne Moore, did not attempt to rewrite – but during his lifetime he published only three privately printed books.
Ross left behind not only a great mass of unpublished manuscripts, but a reputation as the first modern Canadian poet, a reputation confirmed by the publication of Shapes and Sounds: The Poetry of W.W.E. Ross in 1968. That book, fine as it was, focused on Ross the imagist only, but he was also the first surrealist (or irrealist, as he liked to speak of it) – years ahead of the automatistes in Quebec – a translator, and a sonneteer of formal excellence. Through him, modernist poetry in Canada must now be looked at with an entirely fresh eye.

LIVE COVERAGE Poems - Priscila Uppal

In Live Coverage Priscila Uppal deftly negotiates between the contemporary and the mythic, in a bourgeoning 21st century that bristles with biblical and classical justice. Taking the form of a news report, complete with news crawl and mid-broadcast interruptions, this risky and unique collection of poems presents psychologically stark and wrenching portraits of individual lives here and now, while managing to be both a modern document and prophetic utterance. Readers will be hard pressed to forget Uppal’s Cassandra-like clarity.
• "Uppal’s poems put down roots in your mind. In words that wound. And heal." –Rosemary Sullivan
• "One of the most engaging young poets writing in English in Canada today." –World Literature in Review
• "Uppal is assured a prominent place in the firmament of this country’s new exciting poets." –Austin Clarke

OTHER PEOPLE’S SHOWERS Short Stories - Mark Paterson

We’ve all used other people’s showers, whether it be in a hotel where the shower caps are free or in your grandmother’s house where a long back scrubber hangs from the shower nozzle. Washing in other people’s showers is a common human experience, mundane on the surface but riveting once we realize that another person’s shower is not only a physical place, but a state of mind we are entering into. And that is what we do in these nine stories – we enter other people’s showers, other people’s lives.

THE GREEN TABLE Poems - Colin Carberry

As knowledge deepens, so sorrow increases in these poems that move in measured cadence to the goading of old roots; and at the root is man in his shock of bone . . . attempting to atone for black self-loathing and all the killing that comes out of the grey-dark of the brain: troops in armored cars in Chiapas or troops in armored cars in Belfast . . . it was déjà vu: race/class warfare live, relieved only by the lover who stands as a fugitive exclamation mark in the hour of the banging question.
Colin Carberry is a Canadian-Irish poet who lives and works in Toronto.
Included in The Green Table are a series of translations from the great Mexican poet, Jaime Sabines. (A volume of Sabines’ work, translated by Carberry, is also available from Exile Editions, as part of our 2004 Catalogued List.)
