Issue #147

At the centre of this issue is Elisabeth Harvor’s prize-winning novella, selected by judges Robert Finley, Helen Humphreys, and Lorna Jackson. But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves! First, Crispin Elsted, cofounder of Barbarian Press, welcomes us with six poems in riddle form, drawing inspiration and subject matter from the Exeter Book. These riddles set the tone for the following poems and the novella, where the playful exposes the profound and, in the novella in particular, the humorous can reveal (or mask) something more sinister.

About Our Back Pages

The Malahat Review, founded in 1967, has a storied past, and it’s one we'd like to share with you. Following the success of our 50 Issues Project, in which we highlighted select back issues in honour of the University of Victoria's 50th anniversary in 2012, we have decided, through Our Back Pages, to continue casting our gaze back, chronologically, over our complete backlist…to include (eventually!) brief summaries of every issue not previously covered.

Every two weeks, Our Back Pages showcases an issue from our archive, providing on the Malahat's website, with brief but informative descriptions of the issue's contents, notable contributors, prizes won, and any other tidbits of information we might glean.

Issue #1All the issues profiled in the Our Back Pages and 50 Issues Project are integrated into the Malahat's Issue webpage. Click the "About this issue" links to read more.

Every Our Back Pages summary is written and signed by a member of the Malahat's extended family, including staff and volunteers, University of Victoria students, staff, alumni, faculty, and passionate readers. If you’re interested in writing a profile of an as-yet-unassigned issue, please email us at malahat@uvic.ca.

If you're interested in obtaining one of the issues profiled, most are available for sale. Please note prices will vary, depending on how long ago an issue was published as well as its scarcity.
