About the Book
For many years The Muses’ Company was the poetic voice of English-language poets in Quebec. No Canadian poetry bookshelf will be complete without this anthology, which features poems by Endre Farkas, Artie Gold, Ken Norris, Elias Letelier-Ruz, Tom Konyves, and more. This collection showcases The Muses’ Company poets at their best, with works that range from the lyric and mythic to the political, comic, and surreal. For the first time Muse On! brings together these poets and their work in a celebration of diversity, craft, and artistic accomplishment.
