Product description

Review

``The quest for a wider audience for poetry may be quixotic, but this series makes a serious attempt to present attractive, affordable selections that speak to contemporary interests and topics that might engage a younger generation of readers. Yet it does not condescend, preferring to provide substantial and sophisticated poets to these new readers. At the very least, these slim volumes will make very useful introductory teaching texts in post-secondary classrooms because they whet the appetite without overwhelming.'' (Paul Milton Canadian Literature, 193, Summer 2007)

``Selected and compiled by Méira Cook (who also provides the reader with an extensive and informative introduction) [and] enhanced with the inclusion of an essay by McKay ... Field Marks is a superb introduction to an accomplished poet and will motivate the reader to search out his other published works.'' (Jason Warrant The Midwest Book Review, August 2006)

``The books are fairly slim (ranging from fifty-six to eighty pages), but each provides a decent outline of the respective poet's career, style, and dominant concerns. The introductory essays are straightforward and informative--they provide a useful interpretive framework for anyone coming to this poetry for the first time. These volumes seem designed for students and educators; each offers a more complete picture of the poet than one would get from an anthology.'' (University of Toronto Quarterly, Letters in Canada 2006, Volume 77, Number 1, Winter 2008)
