The Visit

With this book-length poem in the tradition of investigative poetry as advocated by Ed Sanders when he wrote, “…poetry should again assume responsibility for the description of history,” Sharon Doubiago takes on both the Church and State over issues of race, gender, sexual abuse, injustice and the perversion of power in a complex search for justice and reconciliation within the context of history and the very personal story of one man - a full-blooded Shuswap-Lillooet Indian - accused and convicted of a crime he claims he did not commit.
