Quebec Suite


Quebec Suite: Poems for and about Quebec

Endre Farkas

About the Book

Quebec Suite is an intriguing and timely anthology by English Canadian poets writing about and for Quebec. There is no simple yes or no here as to what Quebec wants and is. The poets, Jack Kerouac, Leonard Cohen, Al Purdy, Irving Layton, P.K. Page, Ralph Gustafson, Elizabeth Brewster, William Henry Drummond, A.M. Klein, F.R. Scott, and many others, the unacknowledged legislators of the world, explore the complexities of the Quebec conundrum. Quebec Suite is a poetic/historical and personal perspective of what Quebec has meant to these writers. We’ve heard from the politicians, economists, pollsters, and now we, in Quebec Suite, can hear from those whose poems shape our imaginative sense of self.
