In a Fragile Moment: A Landscape of Canadian Poetry is a significant study of Canadian poetry. When was the last time that you can recall a project of this range? This perceptive book truly is a one of a kind.
In a Fragile Moment: A Landscape of Canadian Poetry is an insightful collection of essays and reviews, written from the poetic heart of Professor Olivé. The authors covered in this astute critical study are treated with heart felt respect. Professor Olivé has the uncanny ability to portray his incisive observations in a poetic and perceptive manner.
This is a substantial study of 238 pages. I cannot recall the last time a project of this scope was undertaken. In fact, this book may truly be unique.
