The Bull Calf and Other Poems

LAYTON, Irving

Regular price $200.00 Sale

From The Bull Calf, a moving plea for animal rights, to Earth Goddess, a tribute to Marilyn Monroe, Irving Layton continues to startle readers with his non-conformity. This collection includes On Seeing the Statuettes of Ezekiel and Jeremiah in the Church of Notre Dame, in which the poet resents Hebrew prophets being represented in a French-Canadian Catholic Church. Layton creates controversy to this very day, with some approving of his "tell it like it is" style and others disliking what they interpret as narrowness and intolerance.
