Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Wild Peculiar Joy is Irving Laytons poetic testament. Hailed as the great lyric poet, Irving Layton has come to be known as one of Canadas most powerful, groundbreaking voices, an important and influential writer whose distinguished career spanned almost forty-five years. By turns passionate and grave, joyous and apocalyptic, his beautifully crafted poems are illuminated by a strong social and political conscience, and an intensely humanistic view of the world. This is poetry that is timeless and universal. Drawn from his entire body of work, and now reissued in this handsomely redesigned volume, this edition includes a new introduction by Sam Solecki, and selected short excerpts from Irving Laytons writings on the craft of poetry. A Wild Peculiar Joy once again makes available to readers the poetry of Irving Layton and stands as the authors definitive selected.

One of Canada’s most highly celebrated and prolific poets, having authored over forty books of poetry, many of which have appeared in translation, Layton has been the recipient of numerous awards for his poetry and for his continuing contribution to Canadian literature. He was twice nominated for the Nobel Prize for Literature.
