Poems for All the Annettes free pdf Originally published by Contact Press in 1962, then later by House of Anansi in 1967, and again in a revised, expanded edition in 1972, "Poems for All the Annettes" stands as one of the essential documents of the great Al Purdy's career. So many beloved poems are here--"At Roblin Lake," "At the Quinte Hotel"--but also so many undiscovered gems and treasures. It is at once the perfect introduction to this remarkable poet's work and a collection rich and deep enough to satisfy even the experienced Purdy fan. This edition reproduces the final, expanded text of the 1972 edition, and features a brilliant new introduction by poet and novelist Steven Heighton, who knew Purdy well.
