Christiana Brontie’s ‘The Pause’ Chronicles Struggles, Hope, and Resilience

In the insight of Christiana Brontie’s poetic world, ‘The Pause’ emerges as a heartfelt collection that summarize the essence of human experiences, transcending borders and resonating with readers on a universal level. Born Fontella Antoinette Beckford in the quaint Brontie District of Manchester, Jamaica, Brontie migrated to Canada in 1983, where she found solace and inspiration in the written word.

“The Pause,” Brontie’s debut poetry book released in September 2023 under her pen name, Christiana Brontie, serves as a poignant exploration of diverse themes, delving into the intricacies of life, love, and societal challenges. Her poetic journey commenced shortly after arriving in Canada, using verse as a medium to express the complexities of social and relationship issues, knitting together a narrative that resonates with authenticity.

The collection navigates through the raw emotions of unrequited love, heartbreak, loss, and the relentless pursuit of success in the face of a demanding world. Brontie fearlessly tackles contemporary issues such as racism, addiction, discrimination, and the profound impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, delving into the collective feelings of isolation and uncertainty that defined this period.

Rooted in her personal experiences as a child raised by a single mother, Brontie’s introspective verses unveil a transformation from an outgoing extrovert to a contemplative introvert. Her words capture the evolving dynamics of her life, addressing the struggles of navigating adulthood and parenthood, all while retaining hope for the future.

As a child protection worker, Brontie draws from her professional experiences, offering a unique perspective on societal challenges. Currently working on her second book, she plans to share insights from her encounters while working in the north, promising readers another compelling glimpse into the tapestry of her life.

In ‘The Pause’, Christiana Brontie has crafted a poetic symphony that invites readers to pause, reflect, and find solace in the shared human experience. Through her words, she artfully interlaced the personal and the universal, leaving her mark on the literary landscape. ‘The Pause’ is readily available online at all leading book stores.
