Poems for the Advisory Committee on Antarctic Names
In this artfully crafted collection, Soraya Mariam Peerbaye leaps onto the stage with aplomb. She examines how naming expresses our relationship with each other and the natural world and how meaning is affected when there is no permanent human settlement to remember names.
Soraya Mariam Peerbaye is of Mauritian ancestry. Her poetry has been published in journals such as Prairie Fire and the New Quarterly and in Red Silk: An Anthology of South Asian Canadian Women Poets.
