About this Item

A Near Fine copy in a Very Goodprice clipped dust jacket with two edge tears, creasing to top edge of the jacket, and some sunning to the spine. Laytonís lush, elemental poems explore sexual and spiritual intimacy. In his running battle against Puritanism, Laytonís work provided the bolt of lightning that was needed to split open the carapace of conservatism and complacency once prevalent in Canadian literary circles. The 1940s through the 1960s were years of creative exploration and discovery and, in the years since, many writers have acknowledged Layton as both teacher and inspiration. He is remembered by many as one of the first Canadian rebels of poetry, politics, and philosophy. First Printing of the First Canadian Edition. Bookseller Inventory # 25438
