Faculty teaching English at Capilano University include distinguished Canadian writers and academics. Our recent publications are listed below. For publications by author/faculty member, see the list under Publications on the left.
Bowering's Books, a special issue of The Capilano Review, is
240 pages devoted to celebrating George Bowering's genius. Too often the subtle
complexities of his writing are lost in hilarity. Bowering's Books pays
attention to the dazzling range and brilliance of his writing, its tireless
probing experimentation, its selfless poetics, its sheer generosity, and its
major contribution to the literature of this country.
Read Colin Browne's conversation with Bowering about the 50
titles he would stock a library with, see architect Sacha Milojevic's design
for a George Bowering Reading Room; read Margaret Atwood on the selected
Bowering that she edited in 1969; Fred Wah on Bowering's first book, Sticks and
Stones; Ted Byrne on Genève; Steve McCaffery on Allophanes; Daphne Marlatt on
the collaborative mock Western The Story, She Said; Meredith Quartermain on
Burning Water; Kevin Killian on Harry's Fragments; Karl Siegler on Kerrisdale
Elegies; Miriam Nichols on Bowering and Blaser; Deanna Fong on Bowering audio; and
many many more wonderful pieces.
