Homage to Henri Alline and Other Poems marks a new stage in the long career of this renowned poet. The book consists of two long poems flanking a collection of related short poems. At once austere and rich, this book is a vintage offering from a poet at the height of his powers.


In the spring of 2001, Douglas Lochhead received the Alden Nowlan Award for Excellence in English-language Literary Arts from the Lieutenant Governor of New Brunswick. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Member of the Order of Canada, the recipient of honorary doctorates from several universities, professor emeritus at Mount Allison University, senior fellow and founding librarian at Massey College, University of Toronto, and a life member of the League of Canadian Poets. After beginning his career as an advertising copywriter, he became a librarian, a professor of English, a specialist in typography and fine hand printing, and a bibliographer, scholar, and editor — indeed, he has characterized himself as "an unrepentant generalist." At Mount Allison University, he was a founder and the director of the Centre for Canadian Studies, and he held the Edgar and Dorothy Davidson Chair in Canadian Studies.
