From migration, teaching, attending to the sick and dying, or navigating new relationships or identities, the poems in this collection are at once evocative and poignant and at times playful. This book offers insight into what is possible with the poetic voice.
This book can be read from beginning to end or by reading non-sequentially among the contributions. The editors of this collection have brought together a diverse array of authors who use poetry as research, and who explore many ways in which poetry can bring the reader into deeper understandings of experiences or issues.
Drs. Lynn Butler-Kisber, John J. Guiney Yallop, Mary Stewart, and Sean Wiebe are Canadian education scholars who employ poetic inquiry in their work. Since the inception of the International Symposium on Poetic Inquiry in 2007, they have been an integral part of the international poetic inquiry community. Each has a keen interest and commitment to education and the arts, social science research, and literacy learning.
