Description

And as for Louis Dudek's Epigrams, well, why not? A neglected form in the hands of a master and including such gems as "Fame is mainly the privilege of being pestered by strangers" and "If you don't want an enemy to know what you think of him, don't tell your friends."

Contributor Notes

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 was dedicated to ongoing intellectual and artistic discussion. In the years before his death in 2001, Dudek was justly identified as Canada's premier man of letters.
