Final coverA Hundred Poems About Flowers by Robyn Marie Butt

ISBN: 978-1-926448-29-9 
$22.95
Publication: October, 2018

-the final twenty-five-

In the fourth and final volume of her poem-and-audio collaboration with Southwestern Ontario painters, Robyn Marie Butt looks at flowers as metaphor – living energetic imprints that intertwine with who we are and who we may become. In these poems, flowers sum up relationships to self and others; become emblems of struggle or survival; offer a breath of  resilience from another dimension. Flowers act as secret guides for the experiencer alone; as rebel companions, flouting solitude’s conventions. Yet Butt also examines flowers as abused for the current social lie only to open back that lie and lay it out for dissection. Somehow the bloom itself floats free, transformative energies intact – an invitation anyone can follow into new and better worlds. For this final volume, Butt has done the paintings herself.

Aubade

Aubade edited by E. Alex Pierce

ISBN: 978-1-926448-26-8

$19.95

Publication: November, 2018

Poetry and Prose from Nova Scotia Writers

A unique anthology featuring the work of Nova Scotia poets and fiction writers based on the Aubade.

The aubade — a dawn song expressing the regret of parting lovers at daybreak. The earliest European examples date from the end of the 12th century (the Provençal and German equivalents are alba and tagalied.) Some scholars believe that the aubade, which has no fixed metrical form, grew out of the cry of the medieval watchman, who announced from his tower the passing of night and return of day… Whatever its origin, the aubade is found in nearly all early poetries. Its poignancy crosses cultures. This anthology will expand the definition to include works from the narrative genres as well: fiction and essays.
