101 BRINGHURST, Robert. Selected Poems. First Edition, Paperback.
Gaspereau Press, Kentville, N.S., 2009, ISBN:9781554470686 
BRINGHURST, Robert. Selected Poems. (Kentville, N.S.) : Gaspereau Press, Printers & Publishers, MMIX (2009). First Printing. Pp (2),[1]-265,(5). 8vo, red card covers with black lettering to spine, and black dustjacket with silver lettering to front wrapper and spine, cream wrap-around on back cover.“This volume of Robert Bringhurst's poetry brings together selections from several of his collections; along with the complete texts of some of his p olyphonic works – including Conversations with a Toad and The Blue Roofs ofJapan - and presents a series of new poems in a final chapter entitled "Th e Living." Moving from Japan to the Middle East to British Columbia, and drawing on the work of Eastern, pre-Socratic and Native North American thinkers, Bringhurst s work is as compelling as it is wide-ranging. Those familiar with the author's prose will find many of the same concerns manifested here - ideas about mythology, ecology, philosophy, language, art and music, taken up in sparse, elemental imagery, each poem an attempt to whittle back to h the experience of a body in a knowable and unknowable world.” - from the wrap-around. Very good in dustjacket. 45.00
