15 Canadian Poets X2
Oxford University Press, 1988 - Canadian poetry - 568 pages
This collection now reaches back to include E.J. Pratt, A.M. Klein, F.R. Scott, Miriam Waddington, and Ralph Gustafson, and forward to include a representative sampling of the best writing of Anne Szumigalski, Robrt Kroetsch, Bronwen Wallace, Robert Bringhurst, and Robyn Sarah. (A selection of Gary Geddes's own work is also included.) There are not only short lyrics by these poets but a strong selection of longer poems by Pratt, Livesay, Newlove, Kroetsch, and others. The entire anthology provides an excellent overview of Canadian poetry in this century, presenting new subjects and new forms; an increase of poetics in the Notes; and a greater range of choices for teacher and student.
