The Devil's Whim Occasional Chapbook Series: No. 19
Our latest Devils Whim chapbook contains nine poems by one of Canadas most celebrated poets, Dennis Lee. The series includes a plan for the preservation of birdsong, a ballad about a problem, an exaggerated caution against exaggeration, an encounter with a longwinded storyteller in a public washroom, and the fate of an ant who tries to help a highfalutin elephant. Combining whimsical rhymes, ballad metre and tales to suit a variety of perspectives on the world, from insect to birds eye, The Bard of the Universe evades the usual assignment of readership according to age.
