About this product
- DescriptionMerging poetry and historical records, Zits masterfully (re)creates a poetic view of the Frog Lake Massacre of April 2, 1885. His collage and cut-up techniques challenge the histories penned by the event's recorders and reflect upon the difficult and painful complexities of past and present. He weaves together voices of Metis and First Nations participants, settlers, and military officials, using tape transcripts, historical accounts, memoirs, and foottes to create a unique, n-narrative historiography of fragmented poetic language. This invative work of literary montage digs deep into a historic period that continues to garner scholarly and public interest. Readers interested in poetry and Canadian history will find this an intriguing new collection.
- Author BiographyPaul Zits is a poet whose work has been widely published in various literary journals, including Canadian Literature and Arc Poetry Magazine. He lives in Calgary.
