Orange, P.K. Page : An Annotated Bibliography A4. Anansi House of Poetry, HAP31. "The poetry of P.K. Page has been familiar to readers since the 1940's when she emerged as one of the most talented of the Montreal Preview GFroup. The present collection is a definitive one. As well as such widely-known classics as 'Photos of a Salt Mine', 'T-Bar' and 'Arras', it includes poems from the little magazines of theperiod, poems written at the time but not published, and recent works whic h have never before appeared in book form. Page's work dazzles with a series of wittily observed interior landscapes, and she commands an adroit, distinctive poetic style. Her technical gifts underline important themes: she is a writer critically, sometimes satirically, aware of the society that surrounds her and an angrier poet than we had supposed." - from the rear cover. Name inked to flyleaf, four characters inked inside rear cover, blindstamp to title page, else very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 15.00
