Lala Heine-Koehn

Seduction of the Written Word previous next   Ekstasis Editions

Of the many passions to which a poet’s heart responds, most powerful of all, perhaps, is The Seduction of the Written Word. In this memorable new collection by Lala Heine-Koehn, evocative poems of love and silence suggest the subtle nuance of attraction and the complexity of romance. Arising out of the poet’s many journeys to Cuba for literary festivals, the poems in this volume may dazzle with Caribbean sun, but are universal in content and appeal. Anyone who has loved or longed for love will find beauty and solace in these delicate lyrics celebrating “someone I had not yet met.” The Seduction of the Written Word is arguably the finest collection yet from the experienced pen of Lala Heine-Koehn. It is poetry that seduces but never disappoints, echoing like a fragrant memory in the reader’s mind and heart.

Lala Heine-Koehn was born in Poland in 1936. She immigrated to Canada in the late 1950s, living first in Saskatoon and then Victoria, where she and her family currently reside. She has published seven works of poetry, and also continues her passion for watercolours and pen and ink.
