The critical essays that make up this book demonstrate the integrity and coherence of Louis Dudek and his artistic vision, his life-long dedication to art, reason, clarity, and truth. Michael Gnarowski places Dudek in Montreal and provides a comprehensive overview and introduction that no one else could write. Frank Davey provides the foundation of Dudek's poetic. Dorothy Livesay encourages us to read better (the music, the music). George Hildebrand locates Dudek's work where it must be located, at the leading edge of (post)modernity, at the centre of current scientific research on mind and language. Tony Tremblay and Stuart Donovan respond to two of the many significant Dudek texts of the 1990s, and Aileen Collins succinctly introduces Louis Dudek as artistic humanist and educator of the public. As well, one of Dudek's current publishers describes the experience of working with him. The interview with Louis Dudek included here took place in January 1999 and reflects some of the concerns of 'the poet in old age/between Orpheus and Morpheus'.
