Product Description


"Page after page of . . . splendid poetry." —

Quill & Quire


"Wonderful . . . an enormously valuable resource for readers and teachers of Canadian poetry . . . A balanced roster of established and emerging poetic voices that reflects both the diversity and the intensity of the region's poetry . . . Instructive and exciting . . . Coastlines is a book that will foster much pleasure and a deeper understanding of Canadian poetry for many years to come." — University of Toronto Quarterly (2012-10-26)

From the Back Cover

The poets of Atlantic Canada are as pre-eminent today as they were in the days of Alden Nowlan, Milton Acorn, and John Thompson. This vitality is the inspiration for Coastlines: The Poetry of Atlantic Canada. Coastlines showcases half a century of poetry by sixty of the region's finest poets, beginning with the acknowledged greats: Nowlan, Acorn, and Thompson. Among the diverse voices are Elizabeth Bishop, Douglas Lochhead, Anne Simpson, Al Pittman, and Tammy Armstrong. Powerful poems by 2001 Governor General's Award winner George Elliott Clarke are included, and works by recent finalists Lynn Davies, Don Domanski, Sue Goyette, and Carole Langille. This astonishing range makes Coastlines an expansive reading pleasure.
