Product Overview

Tim Lilburn has long been recognized for his ability to explore issues of ecology from a variety of viewpoints -- philosophical, moral, ethical, even poetic. This new collection expands on his thoughts in surprising and enlightening ways, concentrating on how we relate (often uneasily) to our physical landscape in Canada and the United States. "Going Home" is especially timely in a world where the whole of North America is waking up to the fact that our "home" is endangered because of how we live in it.

From the Publisher
Editors Note One of Canada's most revered poets and essayists, Tim Lilburn has long been a deep thinker on issues of ecology and writing. In Going Home, Lilburn addresses how North Americans relate (often uneasily) to our physical landscape: we subjugated the land and as a result have failed to settle fully into this place.|Retrieving an almost lost strand in the Western intellectual tradition - the erotic, contemplative strand - Lilburn traces a history of eros and desire in the hope that this exercise and its awakening can lead us home. The collection finishes with two unforgettable personal essays in which Lilburn writes about the place where his ancestors are buried, the flatlands and coulees of southern Saskatchewan.
