In the Silence Absence Makes
Halli Villegas

In the Silence Absence Makes is a poetic mystery, a nightmare, an elegy. A lost girl and the loss of innocence, both of the child and the society she is part of. Poems like the photos on the front pages of today's newspaper.

Austin Clarke
2015
ePub
Two black men: the poet, an elder and veteran of last century's civil rights movement; and a nameless youth, swaggering and beltless, seduced by guns-and-gangs and expensive cars, and perpetually targeted by police. They are brothers by the colour of their skin, neighbours in the same “crib,” yet separated by...

The persistence of misconceptions about Italian-Canadian food culture raises many questions for us. Are we gluttonous, inebriate and too loud? Do we force-feed guests? Are we in fact food-obsessed?
