Product Overview

This volume features thirty-five of Don McKay?s best poems, which are selected with a contextualizing introduction by M?ira Cook that probes wilderness and representation in McKay, and the canny, quirky, thoughtful, and sometimes comic self-consciousness the poems adumbrate. Included is McKay?s afterword written especially for this volume in which McKay reflects on his own writing process?its relationship to the earth and to metamorphosis.

Don McKay has published eight books of poetry. He won the Governor General?s Award in 1991 (forNight Field) and in 2000 (for Another Gravity), a National Magazine Award (1991), and the Canadian Authors Association Award for Poetry in 1984 (forBirding, Or Desire).
