Description

The Best Canadian Poetry in English 2010 proudly continues a series that kicked off with a bang in 2008 under the stewardship of esteemed series editor, Molly Peacock, and inaugural guest editor, award-winning poet Stephanie Bolster. The 2009 edition was expertly curated by A.F. Moritz, winner of the 2009 Griffin Poetry Prize. And this year, Lorna Crozier has chosen the fifty best Canadian poems published in Canadian literary journals and magazines in the preceding year. With this anthology, readersâ??often baffled by proliferating poems and poetsâ??will be able to tap into the remarkable and vibrant Canadian poetry scene, checking out the currentsâ??and cross currentsâ??of poetry in a volume distilled by a round robin of distinguished editorial taste.

Editorial Review

Praise for The Best Canadian Poetry in English 2008:â??Lovers of poetry should buy this volume: read some good poems, and encourage the future of this series.â?â??Rover ArtsPraise for The Best Canadian Poetry in English 2009:â??This would be an excellent book for the academic and the casual poetry fan who wants to dust off the rust in their CanLit poetry ligaments.â? â??â??Michael Peckham, Broken Pencil"If poems outside Moritzâ??s personal aesthetic are understandably absent, the chosen fifty, presented alphabetically from Atwood to Zwicky, are in no way devoid of delights, and my notes record many remarkable moments."â??Maxianne Berger, Rover Artsâ??The collection is a unique glimpse at a diversity of poets, from Ottawa's David O'Meara to Margaret Atwood to the revered P.K. Page.â? â??Cormac Rae, Ottawa Xpress
