The Night the Dog Smiled
In 1974, noted Canadian critic Frank Davey said that John Newlove had developed 'one of the most direct and visually precise styles in twentieth-century poetry.' Here Newlove is at his finest in a collection of sharply honed, direct, and ruthlessly honest poems of intense feeling, observation, and involvement. Newlove writes from the perspective of a true craftsman who insists that the clarity of his vision be respected in every word he puts in print.
JOHN NEWLOVE is a Governor General's Award-winning poet who has published several books of poetry.
