Milton Acorn

Paul Vermeersch has a birthday post for Milton Acorn over on his blog. Acorn's a personal favourite of mine, and the best poet ever to come out of my home province of PEI (though Mark Strand provides some pretty tough competition).

It's been a while since I read Acorn, but Strand gets my vote -- sorry, were we voting?

Did I tell you that one of Milton Acorn's last black notebooks recently came into my posession? Weird to see it now sitting on my bookshelf. I'll show it to you the next time you're in town.
