    Hilarious, intensely parodistic and at least to and for me, often very much laugh out loud funny , Paul Hiebert s fictional biography of Sarah Binks the emotionally and cloyingly described so called sweet songstress of Saskatchewan casts a wide and appreciatively all encompassing net, satirising the literary pretensions of not only authors but also their critics and reviewers as both the works of fictional poet Sarah Binks and the laudatory, generally almost artificially glowing words of the equ [...]

    Hiebert s novel makes for an excellent companion to the other great Canadian novel of satire and parody, Leacock s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town Both works poke fun at small town people, places and events that somehow become writ large in the minds of their narrators, and both point to a darker subtext in which Canadian culture, politics and social life are understood as subject to colonial mentalities which tend to suspend progress Hiebert in particular is poking fun at the grandstanding t [...]

    After reading the first three of Louise Penny s mysteries of Louise Penny s mysteries of the Three Pines Armand Gamache series I decided to read Sarah Binks The book was referred to several times in Louise Penny s books and it piqued my interest The Sweet Songstress of Saskatchewan is the Sarah Binks is the mythical biography of Sarah, a poetess It is quite hilarious but by the middle it becomes tiresome an one tends to lose interest although I did finish it.

    Sarah Binks has become something of a cult hero in Saskatchewan, and it seasy to see why Hiebert wrote this Canadian classic in the late 40s it s a unique and very cleverly written ahem biography of theimmensely talented poetess But it s pure fiction, quite hilarious, and alltongue in cheek Unfortunately, the technique wore thin too quickly, and bythe midpoint my interest was already flagging Despite that, I raise mycoffee cup to the inimitable Sarah Binks, a Canadian prairie classicherself, the [...]

    This is a fictional literary biography of Sarah Binks, the fictional poet laureate of Saskatchewan As reading the book, it becomes apparent that Ms Binks was not the talented poet that many of her supporters claimed she was She did, after all win honours and fame for the sheer quantity of work she produced one book being a cubic foot of poetry As it also becomes apparent that the writer of the biography is not a big fan of Ms Binks either, in fact, the author, or perhaps Ms Binks herself, could [...]

    view spoiler And thus it ENDS in tragedy, and yet hope We still have her great poetry But as much as I d like to understand why it was considered for Canada Reads, I can t accept its brilliance It s sweet and fun, but sexist, racist, and offensive in many ways Humour is hard and harsh and not always appropriate Alas, the horse thermometer The gods of Greek drama must have laughed ironically when that fateful instrument, that first tangible mark of Sarah s success, finally broke and proved to be [...]

    Sarah Binks is a fine satire with some very sunny patches It does tend to drag a bit and loses its momentum in the last 50 pages The joke had been made and then the punchline was repeated several times It deserves its place a piece of Canadiana, as it harkins back to a rural heritage that is becoming lost Parody requires a subtle bending of fact it works because the descriptions seem so close to the mark.

    Satirical account of Saskatchewan s greatest poetess, Miss Sarah Binks Clever and witty Pokes fun at literary criticism Loved that her work is delineated by a two week trip to Regina the Athens of the Prairies and catagorized as being either from her Pre Regina period PR or Post Regina period PR Also loved that no one has ever fully read her magnum opus but they all still comment on it.

    Although Sarah Binks has been mentioned in Louise Penny s Three Pines books, which I really enjoy, I probably would not have been moved to read the book, until a friend recommended it as well I wish he hadn t The humour in Sarah Binks is just not my type of humour It was mildly amusing, but although it was a very short book, it was still too long for me.

    Amusing and at the same time a bit tedious I enjoyed it but would have enjoyed it read in bits and pieces I think At some point, I ll have to try and dig up old Canada Reads archives to hear what the defender had to say about it.

    This quirky little book still makes me smile even several years after I read it.

    Tedious I get that it s satirical, and some of it s really funny But I got the point after the first ten pages Beyond that, it annoyed me.

    That feeling you get when you realize that a sensibility and interest of yours are linked to your nationality which is odd because you never had any sense of your nationality before.
