THOMPSON, John. Stilt Jack. Toronto : Anansi, (1978). First Printing. Pp. (10),11-48. 8vo, art-illustrated blue and brown card covers with french flaps, unlettered spine. Anansi HAP36. John Thompson (b. March 17, 1938, Timperley, Cheshire - d. April 26, 1976). A collection of posthumously-published poems by the British born professor at Mount Allison University in Sackville, New Brunswick, written shortly before his death in 1976. " Stilt Jack isa series of powerful soliloquys on the complexity of love and the process of living. These are made immediate through Thompson's command of metaphor,his eye for the New Brunswick landscape, his intense, often elliptical way of transfiguring everyday things into shorthand symbols of reality. These poems more than fulfill the promise of Thompson's first collection [...]. Stilt Jack is the last testament of a major poet at the pinnacle of his craft." - from front flap. Some light edge-nicking, else very good. Uncommon. 150.00
