epub The Black Canoe

Book description

The author occasionally lapses into overly academic prose - the sort of thing you have to read 3 times before you can glean any meaning from it.Having said that, the book is very informative and insightful and leaves the reader with much to think about.I appreciate that he didn't assign any specific meanings to the work; he provides the mythical and historical context which allows the reader to begin to think intelligently about the layers of meaning in the choice of characters and their placement in the canoe.I say "begin to think intelligently" because you can't absorb the full symbolic meaning, importance, and relevance of the applicable Haida myths, stories and history from one book.This book is a great place to begin the journey to a greater understanding though, and I know I'll have a much deeper appreciation of this amazing sculpture next time I visit its counterpart, the Jade Canoe, at YVR.
