Patrick White

RedShiftpreviousnext Ekstasis Editions

Whether wandering in mythic fields or flying too close to the abyss, the creatures of Patrick White’s world are unbearably tender and lucid shapeshifters, carriers of light. Patrick White returns fire to the gods and takes you with him on the journey. He deftly reinvents the metaphor restoring poetry to its rightful place in a world gone dry.
~ Paulette Claire Turcotte, poet, artist.

Patrick White was the former poet laureate of Ottawa. He published eight books of poetry and his work has been translated into five languages and appears in hundreds of national and international periodicals and anthologies, including Poetry (Chicago), Dalhousie Review, Texas Quarterly, the Fiddlehead, and Georgia Review. Winner of the Archibald Lampman Award, Canadian Literature Award, Benny Nicholas Award for Creative Writing, he was also a runner-up for the Milton Acorn People’s Poet Award. He is founding editor and publisher of Anthos, a Journal of the Arts, Anthos Books, and producer-host of Radio Anthos, a popular literary radio show.
