Edge of Time by Robin Skelton

Book Description

In this collection of poems, Robin Skelton walks the edge, looking forwards and backwards. Meditating on roads taken and not taken, he employs his poetic gift to consider our relation to time: how we are immersed in it, and yet able to step through to other dimensions. One of Canada's finest translators, Skelton also includes a series of translations of such international modernist masters as Rilke, Baudelaire, and Yuli Daniel. "The Edge of Time" was short-listed for the BC Book Prize.

Poetry of the Thirties by Robin Skelton Poetry of the Thirties, Paperback (September 2000)

Auden, Lewis, MacNeice and other key poets of the 'Thirties' were children of the First World War, obsessed by war and by communalism and by the class-struggle. But from within their strongly defined unity of ideals, a varied body of poetry emerged. This book arranges the poetry to make a 'critical essay' of the period.

One Leaf Shaking by Robin Skelton One Leaf Shaking, Paperback (April 2000)

The first collection of Robin Skeltons later poetry written at the apex of his career. These poems attest to his incredible range and prolific talent.
