Poetry by Patrick Warner, Queen Elizabeth II Library, has been selected for inclusion in a new national anthology of poetry, The New Canon: An Anthology of Canadian Poetry, published by Vehicule Press (December 2005). Concentrating on poets who have launched innovative attacks on traditional verse modes, The New Canon offers readers a reliable, if often risk-taking, guide to the last two decades of contemporary Canadian poetry. It is the first book to survey the territory since Dennis Lee’s landmark The New Canadian Poets was published in 1985.
