not yet rated|write a review
Both an acknowledgement and a quiet celebration of the connections that run through people and their personal and public histories, this poetry collection explores and mines the past and present while stepping into the future.

A heady and heads-up mix of classicism, urban pop culture, and historic Glengarry County in Eastern Ontario, this volume roots itself in the green earth, where it holds and thrives at all costs.

Ottawa native Rob McLennan explores the vastness and diversity of Canadian culture and its landscape in an engaging collection of poetry. Far from following only one theme or format, the poems in Bury Me Deep in the Green Wood are an eclectic blend of classical and post modern styles. A former clown, shop clerk, childcare attendant, restaurant worker and more, McLennan’s life experience is almost as diverse as the subject about which he writes.
