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 ofGary 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 newforms; an increase of poetics in the Notes; and a greater range of choices for teacher and student.
