Jan Zwicky is one of Canada''s most innovative intellectual figures. As a poet, philosophy teacher, and violinist, Zwicky strives to give voice to the ecology of experience. Whether reflecting on music, history, poetry, or the nature of thought itself, her work opens the reader to nothing less than the possibility of a different way of being. Despite receiving critical and academic praise culminating in nominations for two separate categories of the Governor General?s Literary Award, both in one year, Zwicky''s work remains mostly unknown; Lyric Ecology seeks to change this. This collection of twenty-five meditations from various contributors comprises the first formal consideration of Zwicky''s philosophy. It includes essays, poems, letters, reviews, and songs, all giving readers insight into her work, what it has achieved, and what makes it significant today.
Mark Dickinson has lived in British Columbia, Ontario, and Indonesia. He received his Ph.D. from Trent University, where he is now a Sessional Instructor in the Department of Indigenous Studies.
