Into the Mystic

British Columbia’s Susan McCaslin has been an important voice on the Canadian poetry landscape for decades now, having produced fourteen volumes of poetry and influenced the work of students at Douglas College in New Westminster for more than twenty years. She works with the heady subject matter of spirituality and mysticism, but still she often manages to pin those ephemeral clouds down and connect them to the lives we lead. As poet and author John Terpstra put it, McCaslin, “sings from the still centre of being human and conscious on a glorious, defiled, everyday earth of love and pollution, dogs, moths and God.” Listen to Susan’s reading here.
