An interesting article on CBC's website about the short-listed nominees for this year's Governer General's Award for Poetry. According to the article, some 170 English-language poetry books come out yearly in Canada -- this aside from self-published volumes, chapbooks, etc. And here, five good-sounding poets: Sharon Thesen and Dionne Brand are familiar names, but Anne Bachinsky, John Poss, and Ken Babstock I've never heard of.
