Poems for all the Annettes


Regular price $40.00 Sale

From the back cover: Winner of the President's Medal in 1964 and the Governor-General's Award in 1966, Al Purdy's Poems for all the Annettes has been in and out of print for the past eleven years. First published in 1962 by Contact Press, it was the culmination of two decades of development and exploration. For the 1968 Anansi edition, Purdy revised many poems, dropped others, and carried in still others from his early chap-books and pamphlets. At a time when Purdy is acknowledged as one of the significant forces in Canadian literature, Anansi is delight to re-issue, in a completely new format, including several previously unpublished works, this essential collection.
