About this product
- DescriptionModern Canadian Poets: An Anthology charts a nation's poetic history from Modernism to the present day. Here are 34 cosmopolitan poets whose work deserves recognition beyond national boundaries. The editors - themselves expatriate Canadian poets - have taken an 'away' angle, redefining the connections between Canadian poetry and the poetries of the United Kingdom and elsewhere. International in outlook, the anthology encompasses those Canadian by birth and by choice, and those who have engaged with the Native, Anglo-Irish and American traditions. First Nations poetry is represented, as is work from both English and French Canada ( Anne Carson's translations of Emile Nelligan, for example). This is an inclusive gathering of individuals and mavericks, of established and emerging voices, of hybrid poets whose work lives between cultures and reaches beyond borders. Modern Canadian Poets: An Anthology will surprise and delight readers both new to and well-versed in Canadian literature.
