Product Description


“Some of us can only afford a half a dozen or so subscriptions to literary magazines, so the publication of The Best Canadian Poetry in English, now in its third year, is a welcome event.”—Maxianne Berger, Rover Arts

“This would be an excellent book for the academic and the casual poetry fan who wants to dust off the rust in their CanLit poetry ligaments.” —Michael Peckham, Broken Pencil

“The collection is a unique glimpse at a diversity of poets, from Ottawa's David O'Meara to Margaret Atwood to the revered P.K. Page.” —Cormac Rae, Ottawa Xpress

Had to get this for class. Didn't really like the poems, becuase they are not the style of poetry that I enjoy. I find them to be quite plain and outer or surface meaning, whereas I enjoy mysitcal and inner or deep meaning.

HASH(0xa3b6ae10) out of 5 stars Some Very Fine Poems July 6 2013
By Linda Johnsen - Published on

This is perhaps the weakest in an otherwise outstanding Canadian series of poetry annuals, in part because too many pages are wasted on "visual poems" which simply don't reproduce well on pulp paper. I was relieved this experiment wasn't continued in the superb 2012 volume. Also, I may be old fashioned but I prefer poems where the poet supplies the words and we readers use our creative imagination to supply the rest.
