From the Back Cover:

No ordinary collection of critical opinions, A. J. M. Smith’s On Poetry and Poets is written in a variety of forms, including verse and the essay. Poet, anthologist and critic, Dr. Smith underpins his criticism with a refined poetic sensibility and an articulate intellect. Whether writing of Scott, Pratt, Layton or Bailey, whether confessing his own compulsion to anthologize or pronouncing on the poet and the nuclear crisis, Smith’s views and perceptions illuminate the nature of poetry in general and the aspects of its existence in Canada in particular.
