These locales become the haunts for outsiders, whose voices include the traveller, farmer, soldier, drug addict, athlete, refugee, and the murdered. In the tradition of songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot and Gord Downie and poets such as Al Purdy, Karen Solie, and David O'Meara,  Read more...

These locales become the haunts for outsiders, whose voices include the traveller, farmer, soldier, drug addict, athlete, refugee, and the murdered. In the tradition of songwriters like Gordon Lightfoot and Gord Downie and poets such as Al Purdy, Karen Solie, and David O\'Meara, The Night Chorus presents so-called \"obscure\" lives, where dark and playful humour collides with historic and mythic characters such as Ovid and Dante, Odysseus and Desdemona. Using lyric poetry and the ghazal, the prose poem and the elegy, The Night Chorus considers the flight of youth from towns to cities, domestic violence, the refugee crisis, and the impact of terrorism on modern life. Bookended by a sequence of lyrics inspired by cross-country road trips, Hoefle references iconic places like Black Dog Road and Seldom Seen and peoples the landscape with fictional inhabitants and imagined lives.\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:exampleOfWork<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/id\/4824210965<\/a>> ; # Poems.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:genre<\/a> \"Poetry<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:inLanguage<\/a> \"en<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4824210965#Series\/the_hugh_maclennan_poetry_series<\/a>> ; # The Hugh MacLennan poetry series<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isPartOf<\/a> <http:\/\/experiment.worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4824210965#Series\/hugh_maclennan_poetry_series<\/a>> ; # Hugh MacLennan poetry series.<\/span>\n\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/entity\/work\/data\/4824210965#CreativeWork\/night_chorus<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:isSimilarTo<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/oclc\/1055049961<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:name<\/a> \"The night chorus<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:productID<\/a> \"1028881832<\/span>\" ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nschema:workExample<\/a> <http:\/\/worldcat.org\/isbn\/9780773554924<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\nwdrs:describedby<\/a> <http:\/\/www.worldcat.org\/title\/-\/oclc\/1028881832<\/a>> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0.\n\n\n<\/div>\n\n
