Reissued in a magnificent new edition, Marshburning is David Aranson's masterful long poem binding his Icelandic roots to the shore of Lake Winnipeg. First published in 1980, this classic is the latest edition in the Turnstone Selects series, highlighting important works that hold both mass and academic interest.

David Arnason is an acclaimed ­novelist, writer of short fiction, and editor. A ­finalist for the Leacock Medal for Humour (King Jerry) and a winner of the Carol Shields Winnipeg Book Award (The Imagined City), David has taught at the University of Manitoba since 1972. He has served as both the acting head of the ­Department of ­Icelandic Studies and head of the ­Department of English. Currently, he lives and writes in Gimli, MB.

[T]ightly wrought, sensuously woven verse, David Arnason's Marshburning is a veritable feast.
