Book - 2016
Rate this:
Robert Kroetsch, one of Canada's most important writers, was a fierce regionalist with a porous yet resilient sense of "home." Although his criticism and fiction have received extensive attention, his poetry remains underexplored. This exuberantly polyvocal text by dennis cooley - who knew Kroetsch and worked with him for decades - seeks to correct this imbalance. This work offers a dazzling, playful, and intellectually complex conversation that draws together personal recollections, Kroetsch's archival materials, and the international body of Kroetsch scholarship. For literary scholars and anyone who appreciates Canadian literature, this work will represent the standard critical evaluation of Kroetsch's poetry for years to come.
