For Nearly fifty years, Tom Dawe has stood as one of the
most respected and admired poets in Newfoundland. New and Collected Poems spans five decades of poetic
achievement, reprinting each of Dawe’s published collections while gathering
previously uncollected poems and presenting, for the first time, the poet’s
stunning new work, Pilgrim.
Here’s Dawe’s characteristically inviting, unassuming, and
seemingly simplistic turns of phrase open pavilions of insight and complexity.
This definitive and necessary volume stands as a testament to a monumental
achievement for readers both at home and abroad.
