• LACEY, Claire: Twin Tongues
LACEY, Claire. Twin Tongues. Halifax / Toronto: Invisible Publishing, 2013. First Edition. 178x120mm. Trade Paperback. New. np. Exploring the power imbalance between English and Tok Pisin, Twin Tongues transforms the English Language into a character who encounters her own foreignness in Papua New Guinea. This text struggles with the ethics of appropriation, language use and second language teaching, questioning the subjective position of the author, the teacher, the speaker of English. The poetry scrapes away the veneer of objectivity assumed by historical descriptions of Tok Pisin. The the first issue of a "Snare Imprint" book by Invisible Publishing, this is the winner of the 2013 Robert Kroetsch Award as selected by Jay MillAr (though it doesn't say this anywhere in or on the book).
