B3970. Ursa Major / Bringhurst
B3970. Ursa Major by Robert Brinhurst. 2009. 97pp. 5"x8". Paper

A new-edition reprint of Robert Bringhurst’s polyphonic masque. Shortlisted for the Dorothy Livesay Poetry Prize in 2004, the National Post calls Ursa Major "a typically majestic and dedicated piece of work."

Described by the author as "a poem that marries Cree, Roman and Greek traditions in a form that is a cross between a five-act play and a string quartet," Ursa Major sounds out variations on the story of the great bear constellation in four languages, using parallel voices to enhance the fascinating discovery of a central myth in multiple cultures.

Ursa Major was first performed by the Regina dance company New Dance Horizons in 2002. This volume attempts to express that performance on the page, with a reading version and a multi-colored "Voice Map" representing the poem’s polyphonic characteristics typographically. The cover and title page feature a wood engraving by Wesley Bates.
