Alfred Goldsworthy Bailey, OC, FRSC (b. March 18, 1905, Quebec City, Quebec – d. April 21, 1997, Fredericton, New Brunswick).

" "The Sun the Wind the Summer Field gathers together a half-century of poems by one of Canada's most distinguished men of letters. Some poems are the work of a young, strong voice applying T.S. Eliot's poetics to the Canadian ethos, while others give voice to old age, undiminished in power and enriched by experience. A few poems appeared in earlier books, a few others have been recently published in The Fiddlehead, The Cormorant, and Wild East, but most have never been published before." - the rear." - the rear.
