Brian Henderson has established himself as a poet who makes us aware of language as an instrument of discovery. In his work we realize that each of the mind’s worlds speaks a secret language, which it is the poet’s task to discover and translate.
In Sharawadji this includes not only such worlds as those created by the surreal paintings of Jacek Yerka, but the intense, re-humanizing experience of loss and grief.
Brian Henderson is the author of ten collections of poetry; Nerve Language, was a finalist for the Governor General’s Award. He holds a PhD in Canadian Literature, and is currently the director of Wilfrid Laurier University Press.
Henderson is joined this evening by local poets Méira Cook, Ariel Gordon, Jan Horner, Maurice Mierau, and Jennifer Still, all of whom will be reading.
