Out of This World

The Natural History of Milton Acorn

Book - 1996
Rate this:

Out of this World is a lively biography of Canada's "People's Poet," Milton Acorn, exploring - and exposing - his larger-than-life myths, and tracing his tragic rise and fall: from his youth in Charlottetown, to Montr#65533;al in the late '50s, to Toronto and Vancouver in the '60s. His poetry was at once political and personal, informed by both Marxist dogma and intimate experience; his voice unique among Canadian poets. For better or worse, Acorn fearlessly and recklessly embraced life as only he could.

A man of great myth, and the subject of much speculation, Acorn died having established himself as one of Canada's most celebrated and popular poets.
