Lazy Bastardism

Lazy Bastardism is the startling title of one of the books anyone interested in Canadian poetry criticism should read - that may seem like a narrow, even laughably narrow, genre, but Canadian poet-critics have a long and impressive history of polemical writing, at least since the 1940s.  This 2012 book, beautifully produced by Gaspereau, is a readable selection of essays by Carmine Starnino, an editor for Reader's Digest, Signal Editons and a prize-winning poet.  Subjects include John Glassco, Margaret Atwood, and Modern Canadian Poets.
