CLARKE, George Elliott. Trudeau : Long March, Shining Path. Kentville, NS: Gaspereau Press, 2007. First Printing. Pp. -123,(5). 8vo, illustrated red and white card covers with French flaps. "George Elliott Clarke's newest dramatic poem drafts an irreverent, jubilant portrait of the life and politics of one of Canada's most controversial political heroes, Pierre Elliott Trudeau. Originally composed as the libretto for a new opera by D.D. Jackson, Trudeau is a political caper, an extravagant portrait in rhyme and a playful study of influence, power, revolution and liberation. With his trademark exuberance and frankness, Clarke injects the life of one of this country's most intriguing personalities." - from the rear cover. Light nicking to spine ends, else very good. Signed and inscribed by Clarke on the half-title leaf. 20.00
