Abstract
 
Description
This collection surveys the culture of arctic Greenland from prehistory to the present, with a focus on the hardships experienced by indigenous communities under colonial rule during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The poems address the tensions between modern life and traditional means of subsistence in the Arctic, and explore themes of cross-cultural communication, cultural and species extinction, landscape and climate change. Many of the poems use forms that are strongly linked to oral performance such as ballads and pantoums. - from Amzon

I really enjoyed this book. Easy to dip in and out of. My favourite poem was called The Message. I also enjoyed the poems about the Greenlandic myths. I knew nothing about Greenland before I looked at this book so it was very interesting for me.
