David Solway: Essays on His Works
Guernica Editions, 2001 - Literary Criticism - 163 pages
In recent years David Solway's groundbreaking trio of critical looks -- Education Lost, Lying About the Wolf, and Random Walks -- have earned him a reputation as a thinker and prose writer of considerable erudition. But it is through his poetry that Solway has established himself as an exemplary and indispensable literary artist. This volume -- the very first book devoted to the study of Solway's work -- includes contributions by such noted poets and critics as W. J. Keith, Wilf Cude, Eric Ormsby, Richard Sanger, and William Ford. The result is a fuller exploration and celebration of the 'cornucopian triumphs' of a poet Carmine Starnino calls in his introduction "one of the best things to ever happen to English Canadian poetry". Carmine Starnino is a poet who lives in Montreal.
