Infinite Worlds

Louis Dudek

Louis Dudek's contribution to Canadian literature has been enormous. Wynne Francis has called him Canada's first "man of letters," in the tradition of Arnold and Pound. Infinite Worlds is a major selection of Dudek's work edited by poet and teacher Robin Blaser. Selections have been drawn from fifteen books and one journal spanning forty-two years. "Dudek is Canada's most important; that is to say, consequential modern voice." Robin Blaser, from the Introduction

Poetry 1998

Louis Dudek, born in Montreal, was educated both at McGill and Columbia University. In New York, as a young poet, he corresponded extensively with Ezra Pound. Back in Montreal, he joined the McGill faculty, where his lectures on literature became legendary. In combination with other key figures in the first and second waves of Canadian poetic modernism, he commenced many of the most important small magazines and literary presses of the mid-century. As a writer, critic, and cultural observer, his career has been dedicated to ongoing intellectual and artistic discussion. Justly identified as Canada’s premier man of letters, Dudek died in 2001.
