Jan Zwicky is one of Canada's most innovative intellectual figures. As a poet, philosophy teacher, and violinist, Zwicky strives to give voice to the ecology of experience. Whether reflecting on music, history, poetry, or the nature of thought itself, her work opens the reader to nothing less than the possibility of a different way of being. Despite receiving critical and academic praise culminating in nominations for two separate categories of the Governor General's Literary Award, both in one year, Zwicky's work remains mostly unknown; Lyric Ecology seeks to change this. This collection of twenty-five meditations from various contributors comprises the first formal consideration of Zwicky's philosophy. It includes essays, poems, letters, reviews, and songs, all giving readers insight into her work, what it has achieved, and what makes it significant today.

This book was almost unreadable. I had heard the author interviewed on CBC and thought it might be interesting, but it is confusing, and dull and very self-absorbed. I was 'killing' time waiting for someone at Ermerg. and it was WAY more interesting watching the goings-on in the waiting room. This book did not catch my interest at all, even under those circumstances when you'd be happy to have ANYTHING to read.
