In Blue Marrow, award-winning poet Louise Bernice Halfe creates an intricate dance of language and voice. A contemporary narrator, a Cree woman, draws into her own story the poignant history of her ancestors and the Europeans they tragically welcomed into their lives. Blue Marrow is a book of vivid characters. Grandmothers both actual and spiritual are prominent in this moving tribute to Native female strength, but many other people, past and present, also appear: Native men and women, fur traders, Jesuits, Métis, all of whose stories interact in the drama of contact Halfe brilliantly renders. This is a book that celebrates the inheritance from generations past. It is both powerful and original, a collection of poems that cuts to the bone and then into the bone, to find the marrow. It establishes Louise Bernice Halfe as one of the most exciting new poetic voices in Canada today.
