Something of a “foreigner” in his own country, Richard Outram was uncommonly dedicated to living an "examined life" and to the act of creation for its own reward. This book represents a posthumous, introductory panorama of this late Canadian poet's work, written by those who continue to admire his achievement. Much of it is new material, offering fresh consideration and a charting of the path of Outram's lifelong engagement with poetry.
