Patrick Lane Launches Collected Poems
Posted: Monday, November 21, 2011 at 2:09pm
Planet Earth Poetry and Open Space proudly present a book launch with Patrick Lane, one of Canada’s most distinguished poets. Lane will read from his new work, The Collected Poems of Patrick Lane, edited by Russell Morton Brown and Donna Bennett, at 7:30pm on Tuesday, November 22, at Open Space (510 Fort Street in Victoria, 2nd Floor).
In The Collected Poems of Patrick Lane, the poems reveal how Lane has developed from an engaged recorder of hard experience--even traumatic violence--into a master poet whose meditations on nature, human frailty, and love allow him to balance the world’s suffering with stunning moments of transcendent beauty and a vision of peace.
Admission to the event is free, and there will be book sales courtesy of Munro's Books.
