Richard Lemm

Jeopardy—Richard LemmRichard Lemm, PEI author, and a UPEI English professor for many years, will launch his new poetry book, Jeopardy, on June 29, at 7 pm in the Carriage House of Beaconsfield Historic House at 2 Kent Street in Charlottetown. Acorn Press, the publisher, will host the launch.

Jeopardy opens with “Profane and Sacred,” poems conjuring myths and journeys—Adam and Eve’s Edenic choice; a Jewish surgeon’s pilgrimage to Assisi; the poet’s grandfather leaving the family farm for America’s first imperialist war. “Skeletal Blues” explores a couple’s struggle with mental illness and the quest for healing.

“History Lessons” takes readers to the British penal colony in Tasmania, reveals pre- and post- Revolution experiences in Cairo teaching Egyptian students, and encounters an ancient civilization wrestling with cross-currents of modernity and tradition. “The Future Hurtling Toward Us” evokes with humour and urgency our ecological reality and environmental crises.

Lemm has published five poetry collections, including Burning House, Four Ways of Dealing with Bullies, and Prelude to the Bacchanal, which won the Canadian Authors’ Association Award. He has won poetry prizes in the CBC Literary Competition, and a PEI Book Award for Shape of Things to Come.

At UPEI, Lemm teaches creative writing, Canadian, British, and post-colonial literature, and environmental literature.
