"A society without poetry and the other arts would have broken its mirror and cut out its heart."Margaret Atwood
So boldly insists one of our greatest writers in "Measures of Astonishment," a refreshing and eclectic mix of both deeply personal and formal essays that offer a glimpse into the minds of some of Canada s most influential poets.
In addition to Margaret Atwood, the contributors to this volume include a virtual who s who of the country s literary elite: Anne Carson, George Elliot Clarke, Anne Simpson, Tim Lilburn, Marilyn Bowering, A.F. Moritz, Mark Abley, Glen Sorestad, Robert Currie, Don McKay, Lillian Allen, and Gregory Scofield.
"Measures of Astonishment" shines a northern light on poetry, offering unique perspectives as to what poetry is, what it does, and why it matters."
