Crossing Lines .
Poets Who Came to Canada in the Vietnam War Era
Edited by Allan Briesmaster and Steven Michael Berzensky
Crossing Lines is the first major anthology of poetry by men and women who grew up in the U.S. and then emigrated to Canada during the Vietnam War era (1965-75). It offers surprising insights into this watershed period and explores provocative themes related to our own time. 76 poets are represented here who have made, and continue to make, significant contributions to Canadian culture and society. A remarkable number have achieved great literary distinction, and all have powerful poetic statements in this book.
