About this product
- DescriptionFor this collection John Glassco won the Goverr General's Award in 1971. He intended it as a definitive selection of his best poetry which includes his frequently anthologized poems such as The Death of Don Quixote , Brummell at Calais , Needham Cemetery and Quebec Farmhouse . Glassco's original selection is presented here in its entirety with additional material and excerpts drawn from his later published work and his translations, together with three short prose pieces dealing with the poetic process, poetry readings and the art of translation. A craftsman of unusual care, Glassco was kwn for his sensitivity and wit as well as for his forthright treatment of love, the stalgia occasioned by the passage of time and the loss of that which we cherish.
