About the anthology:
From a long list of one hundred poems drawn from Canadian literary
journals magazines, this year's guest editor, award winning poet
Stephanie Bolster, has chosen fifty of the best Canadian poems
published in 2007. With this anthology readers, baffled by
proliferating poems and poets, can for the first time tap into the
remarkable and vibrant Canadian poetry scene. Readers are invited to
explore the currents and cross-currents of poetry in a distinguished
volume distilled by a round robin of esteemed editorial taste.
