The Other Language: English Poetry of Montreal


Selected by Endre Farkas

About the Book
The Other Language is a look at English poetry in Montreal, beginning with the first moderns — F.R. Scott, A.J.M. Smith, and A.M. Klein — and ending with poets who published their first book in the seventies. This collection provides the reader with an introduction to the rich and diverse body of work written by Montreal poets in this century. Montreal is the centre of two diverse cultures that exist in a perpetual state of dynamism and tension, and these poets all reflect this dialogue.
