Looking for Henry
 

ISBN: 978-1-895449-91-4

 

Looking for Henry is a long poem sequence which, through its search for “missing” Métis painter Henry Letendre, becomes a search for self, for history and for the intricate weave of Métis, Acadian and Micmac destinies and dispossessions.

In this original, compelling book, Doucet delves into his own Cape Breton Acadian roots and through Letendre's paintings and ancestry parallels the sad histories of the Métis and Acadien people.

“The ground was different [at Batoche], the earth much softer, and richer than it was back home. I took my shoes off and ran over the ground barefoot like a child, amazed at the velvet feeling of the deep, prairie soil and the complex sense of this being a pivotal place in the evolution of our nation.”
