The New Canon: An Anthology of Canadian Poetry

Edited by Carmine Starnino

"Judging from this anthology, Canada's younger generation are more than just promising. Starnino has chosen poems and poets with real sureness of voice, technical inventiveness and a broad range of themes and forms.... [Starnino] has offered us a book of unusual vibrancy and range, and shown himself a persuasive advocate not just of his country's poetry but of his own generation's." -Times Literary Supplement
