Poet, philosopher, translator, typographer, and cultural historian Robert Bringhurst is a modern-day Renaissance man. He has forged a career from diverse but interwoven vocations, finding ways to make accessible to contemporary readers the wisdom of poets and thinkers from ancient Greece, the Middle East, Asia, and North American First Nations. This collection shows the ways in which his industry-standard textbook The Elements of Typographic Style, his remarkable translations of Haida oral epics, and his experimental and traditional poetry and prose form a single coherent project. Listening for the Heartbeat of Being brings together a range of literary scholars, poets, journalists, and publishers to comment on Bringhurst’s far reaching body of work. The essays include a comprehensive biography of Bringhurst, first-hand accounts of his book design and production efforts, an analysis of his ground-breaking polyphonic performance poems, and re-considerations of the Masterworks of the Classical Haida Mythtellers translation trilogy. Experienced Bringhurst scholars join well-known writers such as Dennis Lee and Margaret Atwood to create a multi-dimensional view of Bringhurst’s career. Guided by the simple faith that "everything is connected to everything else," Bringhurst’s ability to listen closely to the great minds of many cultures and represent their voices pragmatically is, as this diverse and insightful book shows, of greater interest than ever in a world facing unprecedented ecological crisis and intensive cultural evolution. Contributors include Margaret Atwood, Nicholas Bradley (University of Victoria), Crispin Elsted (Barbarian Press), Clare Goulet (Mount St. Vincent University), Iain Higgins (University of Victoria), Ishmael Hope, Peter Koch (Peter Koch Printers), Dennis Lee, Scott McIntyre, Katherine McLeod (Concordia University), Kevin McNeilly (University of British Columbia), Káawan Sangáa, and Erica Wagner.

This is not a book for the intellect alone. These poems are songs of the heart, anthems of the soul claiming its freedom to thrive in a world of change and cleansing. They are meant to engage the body, the emotions and the higher mind, like vehicles of passion, to assist in waking up to the power of heartfelt consciousness and the reality of “home”. They are meant to trigger a longing for the celebration of life and the courage to see through the veil of limited human conditioning, of religious beliefs of separation and survival fears. They are vibrational, passionate movements of energy, a dance of words and symbols which can open the heart and mind to expanded realms of a living, loving Universe of limitless joy and creative possibility. My intention is to honor the power of human free will choice in claiming the right and the ability and the freedom to create a quality of life that we truly deserve, a life of tranquility, uniqueness, harmony, belonging, and infinite unconditional love.

This book is deliberately designed to appeal to those readers who are looking for poems that touch upon issues of faith and spirituality. They are poems culled from the author's previous collections - collections that were more universal in their appeal. It seems appropriate to bring together a group of poems that could be used for those quiet moments when the reader chooses to touch upon such perennial issues as the mystery of God and how we find God in prayer, the joy of finding God in the world around us, the inevitability of death. The poems also deal with language and how the intricacies and fumblings of language ultimately find meaning in the one Word. Some poems follow Christ through both the happiness and suffering of his life, but also give us a glimpse into his consoling relationships after the Resurrection. Finally, a few poems look into the lives of some special people. All the poems are designed to elicit questions, harbor joy, and provide an avenue into meditation.

Heart Beats

Many people in Great Britain and the United States can recall elderly relatives who remembered long stretches of verse learned at school decades earlier, yet most of us were never required to recite in class. Heart Beats is the first book to examine how poetry recitation came to assume a central place in past curricular programs, and to investigate when and why the once-mandatory exercise declined. Telling the story of a lost pedagogical practice and its wide-ranging effects on two sides of the Atlantic, Catherine Robson explores how recitation altered the ordinary people who committed poems to heart, and changed the worlds in which they lived. Heart Beats begins by investigating recitation's progress within British and American public educational systems over the course of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and weighs the factors that influenced which poems were most frequently assigned. Robson then scrutinizes the recitational fortunes of three short works that were once classroom classics: Felicia Hemans's "Casabianca," Thomas Gray's "Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard," and Charles Wolfe's "Burial of Sir John Moore after Corunna." To conclude, the book considers W. E. Henley's "Invictus" and Rudyard Kipling's "If--," asking why the idea of the memorized poem arouses such different responses in the United States and Great Britain today. Focusing on vital connections between poems, individuals, and their communities, Heart Beats is an important study of the history and power of memorized poetry.

Heartbeat is a name suggested by her soul to whom she adores the most. Without a heartbeat and a soul, a person is dead. In her book, the author captures all shades of life. It capsules love, romance, spirituality, mindfulness, fear, separation, anxiety, intimacy, oneness, human elements, hope, and self-reflection. Her poems are enjoyable and well-constructed.

The colors and images in her book creates kaleidoscopic effect. Her soul resides in her heartbeat as it directs her through all her sorrows and pain and just makes her feel complete and happy within herself.
