Forthcoming in Canadian Literature

Hamburg July 1943

Hamburg July 1943

Legacy, from the sequence that opens the second part (“Courting the Remembrances”) of Mahler and Freud Meet in Leiden, will be published by the University of British Columbia’s Canadian Literature.

The subject is my father, his experience of incarceration in a Hamburg labour camp by the Nazis during World War II, his escape into the Dutch countryside after the Operation Gomorrah air raid that levelled much of Hamburg, and his later experience of immigrant life in Ottawa, Canada. Three of the seven poems in “Courting the Remembrances” deal with aspects of this subject matter.

This will represent my work’s eighth appearance in Canadian Literature, and is the 42nd of the 78 poems in Mahler and Freud Meet in Leiden to be published in established Canadian, American, and Spanish literary periodicals.
