    The House of Charlemagne by Tim Lilburn Available Now

    The Métis leader Louis Riel prophesied that a polyglot Métis nation—The House of Charlemagne—would rise on the prairies five hundred years after his 1885 death. Built on Riel’s philosophical principles, this nation would privilege justice and the blurring of separations dividing women and men, the earth and human beings. The House of Charlemagne tracks the birth of this ideal polity in the burning imagination of Riel’s former secretary, Honoré Jackson. Commissioned as a text for dancers, Lilburn’s poem gives voice and body to Riel’s vision. uofrpress.ca/Books/T/The-House-of-Charlemagne
