Quill and Quire

“Al Purdy – whose 100th birthday occurs on December 30 of this year – was undoubtedly an iconic poet, central to the development of what we now know (for better or for worse) as CanLit. His colloquial rhythms gave voice to the working class and disaffected. This collection gathers together a cadre of Canadian poets, both dead and alive, including Steven Heighton, Milton Acorn, Susan Musgrave, F. R. Scott, Patrick Lane, Cornelia Hoogland, and Autumn Richardson – to pay poetic tribute to Canada’s unofficial poet laureate.”-- Quill and Quire, July 2018
