He went on to create 'The Sad Phoenician', 'Field Notes', 'Advice to My Friends', and 'Excerpts from the Real World'. The complete long poems of Robert Kroetsch, published here for the first time in one book, come together as a multi-dimensional whole, as the triumphant culmination of a fifteen year journey towards completion." - from the rear cover.

Maroon endpapers. 8vo, illustrated white card covers with black lettering to front cover and spine, French flaps. "Although he lived for many years in the United States, Kroetsch's roots remained clearly Canadian. [...] As 'Excerpts From The Real World'demonstrates, Kroetsch crosses geographical boundaries and challenges aest hetic limitations in art. In this often bizarre, surreal prose/poem, he couples his marvellous language sensitivity with wit and irony. While the poemtouches on themes of love, domesticity, travel, mythoogy, politics, sensua lity, etc., it always returns to the beauty in the scatter of our perceptions." - from the front flap.

12 KROETSCH, Robert Studies in Canadian Literature series. GROVE, Frederick Philip Lovely Treachery of Words : Essays Selected and New. First Edition
Oxford University Press, Toronto, 1989, ISBN:019540694X 
KROETSCH, Robert. The Lovely Treachery of Words : Essays Selected and New. Toronto : Oxford University Press 1989. First Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-x,[1]-206. 8vo, photo-illustrated beige card covers, black titles to front and spine. In the Studies in Canadian Literature series. "This collection of essays - some of them already classics, others appearing in print for the first time - The Lovely Treachery of Words is an important contribution to Canadian literature and culture. In it Robert Kroetsch concentrates on the age-old act of storytelling and its significance to individuals and society, but with a new twist. For many of the stories he examines here are of our postmodern era, when the hazards of story-telling are as noteworthy as its delights, and writers not only tell stories but interrogate them with other stories. Kroetsch examines such issues as silence, eroticism, and violence in Canadian writers ranging from Susanna Moodie and T.C. Haliburton to SinclairRoss and Ernest Bucler to Michael Ondaatje and Alice Munro. He also discus ses the long poem - of which he is a master - in relation to the uncertainty of the modern storytelling impulse, and in the process treats many of Canada's finest poets. Among the other themes and issues he explores are the Canadian writer and the American literary tradition, women in Prairie fiction, nationalism and literature, and Canadian literary strategies. Moving from his own mewmories of an Alberta choldhood to the epic criticism of Northrop Frye, he makes the writing of an essay a story-telling act that celebrates the teller, the listener, and the tale." - rear cover. Chapters : 1. TheMoment of the Discovery of Canada Continues; 2. Disunity as Unity: A Canad ian Strategy; 3. Reciting the Emptiness; 4.

KROETSCH, Robert. The Studhorse Man. New York : Simon and Schuster, (1969).First American Edition. Pp (8),9-191,(1). 8vo, green cloth, with silver le ttering to spine. Lecker, Robert Kroetsch : An Annotated Bibliography A3. The third novel by Kroetsch (b. June 26, 1927, Heisler, Alberta - d. June 21, 2011, Edmonton). "Hazard Lepage is the last of the studhorse men. A fanatical horsebreeder, a comic demon, and a considerable stud in his own right.Lepage roams the wilds ol western Canada in the mid-1940s searching desper ately for the perfect mare to be serviced by his magnificent virgin stallion Poseidon the sole survivor in the superbly bred line of exolit Lepage horses. In this noteworthy American literary debut, Robert Kroetsch relates tbe tragicomic saga of Lepage and Poseidon, as the wanderings of man and horse lead the reader through a maze of bizarre and stirring adventures whichevoke memories of the epic intrigues of Ulysses. Illuminated by the spirit of a horseman's love for his beast, Kroetsch's novel offers an electrifyin g concatenation of human sexual morality and oourageous equine myth. For only in the course of his own destruction does Lepage contribute to Poseidon's eventual triumph as a studhorse of almost supernatural dimensions. The Studhorse Man is then, finally, a nassionate and satisfying comic celebrationof fertility." (from the dj). Very good in lightly spine-browned, unclippe d dustjacket. 40.00
