Despite his reputation as Canada’s dandy-poet and his approach to writing as ‘a challenge best overcome by panache’, John Glassco’s poems demonstrate a seemingly incongruous preoccupation with rural life and an intense interest in decline, dilapidation and despair. Plagued by chronic self-doubt and the fear of wasting literary effort, Glassco explored, through his poems, ‘graveyards minding their business’, buildings ‘long in standing, longer still in falling’, and the toil of ‘hope battered into habit, and a habit / Running to weariness’. The result is a selection of work that features syntactic daring, a somewhat anachronistic pleasure in constructedness and a compulsion to turn feelings of unsuitability into art. The Essential Poets Series presents the works of Canada’s most celebrated poets in a package that is beautiful, accessible and affordable. The Essential John Glassco is the twenty-third volume in the increasingly popular series.

First published at the age of fifteen and admired for six decades as a poetic virtuoso, Daryl Hine is recognized today as one of the strongest Canadian poets of the twentieth century. His poems, widely cultured and often autobiographical, engage with a remarkable variety of forms, genres, and subjects. With their complex syntax and lavish deployment of metres, tropes, and rhyme, the poems in The Essential Daryl Hine reveal what Pollock, in his illuminating foreword, calls "a matador of art, fighting the toro of death with consummate style." The Essential Poets Series presents the works of Canada’s most celebrated poets in editions that are beautiful, accessible, and affordable. The Essential Daryl Hine is the 12th volume in the series.
