Description

"Poets don't do themselves or poetry any favours when they write about trivial matters," writes Boyd in "Comfort and Canadian Poetry" (2002). Boyd's latest collection takes this caution to heart: sober, self-sacrificing, and handsome, The Least Important Man is a book for those who want poetry to reassert its dignity and authority in everyday life.
