Spotlight Review:
Louise Bernice Halfe, Burning in this Midnight Dream

In her fourth poetry collection,  Louise Bernice Halfe hath achieved a canonical work of Anglo-Canadian letters, one that will always be as relevant as the Constitution and First Nations and Crown Treaties. In this book, which is less a traditional collection than it is a putative drama, the Cree poet, also known as Sky Dancer, excavates the voices and stories buried in the volumes of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's report on the sadistic “Christianity” and cultural genocide pedagogy of the Residential Schools. 

Full book review, written by George Elliott Clarke.
