Essays on his Works
In recent years David Solway's groundbreaking trio of critical looks - Education Lost, Lying About the Wolf, and Random Walks - have earned him a reputation as a thinker and prose writer of considerable erudition. But it is through his poetry that Solway has established himself as an exemplary and indispensable literary artist. This volume - the very first book devoted to the study of Solway's work - includes contributions by such noted poets and critics as W. J. Keith, Wilf Cude, Eric Ormsby, Richard Sanger, and William Ford. The result is a fuller exploration and celebration of the 'cornucopian triumphs' of a poet Carmine Starnino calls in his introduction "one of the best things to ever happen to English Canadian poetry".
