Main Description
Yves Boisvert's poetry is incantatory, energetic, ribald, plainspoken-the work of a doubting, hopeful, angry, and joyous man thoroughly engaged in life. Born in L'Avenir, a small town southwest of Drummondville, Quebec, Boisvert now lives in Trois-Rivières where he is somewhat of a cult figure. An award-winning poet, he is the author of more than twenty books. This is the first time his work has appeared in English. Includes French and English text.
Main Description
When he was alive, Gérald Godin embraced poetry and politics with great passion and appetite. Godin was a journalist, a Parti Québecois cabinet minister, and first and foremost, a poet. This is the first of his seven books of poetry to appear in English.
