ACORN, Milton and James DEAHL. A Stand of Jackpine : Two Dozen Canadian Sonnets. Art by Gilda Nekler. Toronto: Unfinished Monuments Press, 1987. Pp (8),-30,(2). 8vo, stapled illustrated greyish wrappers with red lettering to front cover.
"The jackpine sonnet: an irregular sonnet of 13 or 17 (or even 14) lines. This 20th century form retains the pithy, expressive qualities of the traditional sonnet; but, freed from rhyme and lockstep metre, it takes on a loose and rangy vitality. Here are 12 jackpine sonnets by the man who named the form: Milton Acorn, the Peoples' Poet. And 12 more by James Deahl, who learned the form from Acorn and brings his own voice to it. These 24 poems touch on love, politics, history: the spirit of nations, places, people and gods. They belong to a Canadian tradition which stretches back to Lampman and forward to a new generation of poets." -from the rear cover.
