Abstract and Keywords

This chapter takes the form of an interview with the Inuk author and spoken-word artist Taqralik Partridge. Rather than aiming to create an authoritative argument about Inuit literature as a broad category, the contributors instead offer a cross section of discussion on the topic as grounded in the experience—and practice—of a particular author. The conversation covers issues of genre, influence, and the public side of authorial life; it also includes Partridge’s spoken-word homage to the late Nunavik songwriter Charlie Adams. A preface by Keavy Martin outlines the rhetorical considerations that led to the creation of this piece.

Keywords: Inuit literature, Taqralik Partridge, interview, spoken-word, genre, Nunavik
