"The 'Early Poems' collection co ntain all Nowlan's poetry published in book or pamphlet form up to and including [the year 1963]. They represent in a remarkably conmplete form a distinct phase of his life and work, from the trials and joys of childhood and adolescence in rural Nova Scotia to eloquent, sometimes sharp, but always loving commentaries upon people and scenes drawn from his experience of the upper Saint John River Valley. He wrote of country life as a countryman; hewas one with the osciety he depicted even as his imagination set him apart . His 'Early Poems' speak out of a secure sense of place with force, delicacy, and great moral discrimination." - from the dustjacket.
