A title from the publisher's Critical Views on Canadian Writers series, this one presenting a collection of essays/reviews examining the work of a noted Canadian poet and novelist. Editor Nesbitt has selected assessments by Northrop Frye, Fred Cogswell, A.J.M. Smith, George Woodcock, Dorothy Livesay, Watson Kirkconnell, Malcolm Lowry and a number of others, and their views of Birney's work are grouped into five sections: 1) ONE SOCIETY: Poetry, 1937-1948, 2) LINES FOR A PEACE: Fiction, 1949-1955, 3) ONE WORLD: Poetry, 1949-1965 , 4) SELECTED POEMS 1940-1966, and 5) WEED BED: New Directions. Birney contributes an epilogue, and he is scathing in some of his responses to those who have had their say about his work. Nesbitt contributes an Introduction. This copy from the library of writer/editor Stan Atherton, and bears his signature in top right corner of front free end paper. Red cloth, 222 pages (including Selected Bibliography).
