By Anthony N. Chandler Michael Ondaatje "... they were made with the lens wide open" The role of a camera is to capture the light and movement of a moment onto film; the role of an author is to capture the immensity of life's moments onto text. Canadian writer Michael Ondaatje attempts such mystical conjuration in both his prose and poetic prints, while still remaining true to the rhythms of the geographic peoples he mimics in his narratives. Ondaatje, the man, is a mystery. Seldom seen pumping the media for fame, he appears to be a Wizard of Oz who guards his public image quite carefully. Certainly, one can never tell if he consciously plays with scholars for mockery or for the love of the game in either outcome the chase is sweet for all who engage in the self-allusions and breadcrumb clues he leaves in his wake.
While achieving international recognition with the success of the film adaptation of his 1992 novel , The English Patient , Ondaatje did not sacrifice his artistry for the demands of the public. Indeed, Handwriting was a return to both the lush, careful poetry and the images from Ceylon found in

Michael Ondaatje
Born in Sri Lanka in 1943, Michael Ondaatje immigrated with his mother, brother and sister to England in 1952. He followed his brother to Canada in 1962, and attended Bishop's University in Lennoxville, Quebec. He received his B.A. from the University of Toronto in 1965, and his M.A. from Queen's University in 1967. He has taught at a variety of institutions, including the University of Western Ontario, York University, University of Hawaii at Manoa, Brown University and the University of Toronto. Michael Ondaatje is probably best known for his work The English Patient (1992) which was adapted to an Academy Award winning movie. He started with poetry in 1967 publishing Dainty Monsters . In the title, we already see how Ondaatje enjoys juxtaposing opposite images, and as a result explores these seemingly incongruent ideas, a trait that links almost all of his works. His serial poem the man with seven toes (1969) was inspired by paintings by an Australian artist, and a true story of a woman living among the Aborigines after a shipwreck. This interest in historical fragments and visual arts have become signatures of Ondaatje's writing. Both the collection of poems

    "Ondaatje is a poet and even his prose moves with rhythmic, circular precision. . . . This is a good little book, carefully crafted and thoroughly literate. But it is a 'little' book, a portrait in miniature, and eventually limited by Billy's own character."
  • There's a Trick With a Knife I'm Learning to Do
    "This is a poetry filled with odd angles of vision, but it lacks the kind of spectral music it seems to need. It's a poetry that mixes the bizarre and commonplace, but its accents are prosaic . . . But there is a yearning for wonder in this poetry, and a curiosity that informs the imaginative life of his poetry at its best."

    On this day in 1881 Billy the Kid was killed by his nemesis, Pat Garrett, at Fort Sumner, New Mexico. Near midnight, the Kid returned from an errand of love or hunger to find someone in his hideout; to his hushed "Quien es? Quien es?," Billy received a fatal shot above the heart.

    Brian Dillon
    On the Petaluma Road, in the former Gold Rush territory of Northern California, a man inherits a farm, marries a miner’s daughter called Lydia Mendez and adopts a four-year-old boy from a neighbouring farm, whose parents have been murdered by a farm hand. His wife dies giving birth to their daughter, Anna. He leaves the hospital with two girls: the second, Claire, is the daughter of another mother who has died in childbirth. He raises all three children as his own and now and then, Anna later remembers, embraces them ‘as any father would’. The boy, Coop, however, begins to move away in adolescence, restoring an old cabin nearby that belonged to his adoptive grandfather, and dreaming of the gold that might still be found in the riverbeds. He becomes ever more distant, and more fascinating, to Claire and Anna. There is an almost mythological necessity about the narrative set-up of Michael Ondaatje’s novel. A sexual relationship develops between Coop and Anna; they are discovered by the father, who viciously beats his adopted son and drives away with Anna, leaving Claire to nurse the injured Coop in the middle of an ice storm. The mythic structure of this opening section announces a simple narrative schema: the dispersed characters’ lives will be shaped by this unprocessed trauma, and the biographies of all those drawn into their orbit will similarly turn out to be haunted by episodes of violence of which they cannot speak. It makes for a consistent tone, with long stretches of meaningful miscommunication between characters, punctuated here and there by catastrophe, and by the third-person narrator’s timely but strangely vacuous interjections: ‘Will these children, in their eventual cities, turn out to be the heroes of their own lives?’
