Poetry is about the complicated combination of emotion and thought in art that creates a morality, a moral vision of the world... the deepest way you can think.

First Nations poet and playwright Daniel David Moses offers, in this first new collection in more than a decade, poems in a wide variety of modes and moods. His portraits, lyrics, satires and meditations on perception and desire, youth and aging, the self — often aboriginal — and others, continue his thoughtful and passionate exploration of the delicate embodiments of our lives.

His earlier poems are collected in Delicate Bodies, The White Line, Sixteen Jesuses (Exile Editions), and River Range — a CD with music. His plays include Coyote City, a nominee for the 1991 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama, The Dreaming Beauty, a winner of the 1990 Theatre Canada National Playwrighting Competition, and The Indian Medicine Shows (Exile Editions) which garnered the 1996 James Buller Memorial Award for Excellence in Aboriginal Theatre. He has also released with Exile Editions the nonfiction Pursued by a Bear—Talks, Monologues and Tales, the dramas Big Buck City, Brébeuf’s Ghost, and Kyotopolis, as well as edited The Exile Book of Native Canadian Fiction and Drama.

Moses, one of Canada’s foremost First Nations writers, is also an editor, essayist, dramaturge and teacher. He hails from the Six Nations Reserve in southern Ontario and holds an Honours B.A. from York University and an M.F.A. from the University of British Columbia. He is an associate professor in the Department of Drama at Queen’s University, Kingston, Ontario. He lives in Kingston and Toronto.
