Civil Elegies

House of Anansi Press

A beautiful new edition of Civil Elegies, this is Dennis Lee's uncompromising exploration of citizenship, both Canadian and human. Eli Mandel has called Civil Elegies "one of the most important contemporary books of poetry in our country."

Dennis Lee is the author of more than twenty books for adults and children, including Civil Elegies (Anansi), which won the Governor General's Literary Award for Poetry, and the classic children's book Alligator Pie. Lee was one of the founders of House of Anansi Press forty years ago. In 2003 he was named Toronto's poet laureate.
