Human Bodies collects the poems of the latter half of award-winning poet and novelist Marilyn Bowering's illustrious career. On the heels of her Governor General nominated Beach Holme title Autobiography, this collection also includes her earlier works Love As It Is, Calling All the World, Anyone Can See I Love You, Grandfather Was A Soldier and forty-five previously unpublished new poems. The first in our Canadian Classics Series, this is the perfect compendium for students of the next wave of Canadian verse. From Anyone Can See I Love You, a gloss on the glamorous yet tragic life of Marilyn Monroe, to the launch of the Soviet satellite Sputnik II in Calling All the World and the battles of the Somme and Passchendaele Ridge in Grandfather Was A Soldier, this collection is an astonishing tribute to Bowering's boundless range. Equal parts cerebral and sensual, Human Bodies is a retrospective not to be missed and a must-have for every Canadian literature curriculum.
