Writing the Terrain: Travelling Through Alberta with the Poets
Robert M. Stamp
University of Calgary Press, 2005 - Poetry - 280 pages
Take a trip through Alberta with some of Canada's finest established and emerging poets as your guides. Writing the Terrain is the first anthology dedicated solely to the poetry of the Alberta landscape and cityscape, by authors who have travelled the main roads, back roads, and gravel roads of this vast province. This collection, edited by Robert M. Stamp, offers a series of poetic journeys through Calgary and Edmonton, through the foothills, the badlands, the Rockies, the central parklands, and the northern boreal forests. Following in the Canadian literary tradition of “preoccupation with place” these are poems that demonstrate a response to the landscape and ponder its effect on the body, mind, and spirit.
