Poetry is perfect winter reading and this four-pack of writing by Canadian poet Marita Dachsel includes some very rare pieces of poetic ephemera.
All Things Said & Done ::: Marita Dachsel’s debut collection is a visceral exploration of the moments of life that stand out in the pages of a family album and the intervals of memory. She playfully and poignantly documents first crushes, first times, weddings and trips across town, across water, and across continents. A full length poetry book published in 2007 by Caitlin Press and shortlisted for the ReLit Award. It has been described by reviewers "a promising review".
Eliza Roxcy Snow ::: A limited edition chapbook published by red nettle press about one of the more famous polygamous wives of Joseph Smith, the founder of the LDS Church. This long poem is part of a full-length manuscript, Glossolalia. You will receive a signed copy of number 8 of 100.
There were better times than these ::: A limited edition broadsheet made for the Caledonia Writers' Series. This broadsheet was available for purchase only one night. Very rare! You will receive signed copy number 18 of 20.
Dispatches From An Impending Marriage ::: A beautiful limited edition broadsheet made by Greenboathouse Books as part of their Varient initiative which was never available for purchase, but given to subscribers to the press. You will receive signed copy number 19 of 100.
