Good Morning Poems

by George Bowering

NeWest Press


Poetry: Literary

CDN: $20.95


Canadian literary legend George Bowering lays bare his process as reader and lover of poetry in this curated collection of poems to be read in the morning. In a series of deeply astute and conversational essays, two-time Governor General’s Award winner and inaugural Parliamentary Poet Laureate of Canada George Bowering travels through five hundred years, give or take, of English-language literature, adding historical, political, feminist, socio-economic, anecdotal, and literary context to each poem and poet. His selection of poems ranges from the best known to the barely known, each piece treated with depth and reverence, while demonstrating his razor-sharp wit and skill as writer, critic, and reader.
