Patrick Lane and His Works

George Woodcock

67 pages
Ecw Press

Following in the footsteps of his brother, Patrick Lane wrote poetry to escape a life of labour and helped found the small, west coast press Very Stone House in the mid-sixties. This analysis of his work, written by George Woodcock, explores how his peripatetic nature influenced his work, his interest in the everyday life, and his status as an outlaw poet.
