Product description


“Enjoyable, readable, fresh.” (Vine Awards for Canadian Jewish Literature Jury Citation)

“Goodwin makes the mundane beautiful and the beautiful accessible within Catullus’s Soldiers. As a collection meant for both seasoned poetry fans and first-time readers, the writing hits its mark. The work is a commentary on language, is packed with metaphor, and Goodwin’s sense of humour winds effortlessly throughout the writing.” (Telegraph Journal Telegraph Journal Telegraph Journal)

“Navigating between Hebraic and Hellenic poles, Goodwin portrays a well-rounded, three-dimensional tapestry … Allusive yet accessible, Goodwin wears his learning lightly and with considerable wit … [his] soldier-poets converge on the page in alternating currents of surprise and satisfaction.” (Malahat Review)

About the Author

Born in Montreal, Daniel Goodwin grew up in a bookish and artistic Montreal household (Irving Layton was an omnipresent great-uncle, Betty Goodwin a more distant aunt). After a misspent youth writing poetry, he ran away to the East Coast in his mid-twenties to join an oil company. He has since lived in four provinces and worked as a teacher, journalist, corporate communicator and government relations executive, but through it all he continued to write, and his poems and essays have appeared in several Canadian journals and newspapers including Literary Review of Canada, Contemporary Verse II, The Antigonish Review, The Globe and Mail, and Calgary Herald. Goodwin's first novel, Sons and Fathers - about that special relationship, but also about politics, journalism, poetry, and spin - will be published in fall 2014 by Linda Leith Publishing. Goodwin currently lives in Calgary with his wife and three children.
