Summary
  • The career of Eli Mandel (1922-1992) was one of the most prolific and distinguished in all of Canadian literature, yet in recent years his work has gone unsung compared with that of such peers as Margaret Atwood, Leonard Cohen, Robert Kroetsch, Irving Layton, and P.K. Page. Though he was a critic, anthologist, and editor of national prominence, Mandel's legacy resides most securely in his poetry, which earned many accolades. --
  • From Room to Room: The Poetry of Eli Mandel presents thirty-five of Mandel's best poems written over four decades, from the 1950s to the 1980s. The selection covers the most prominent themes in Mandel's work, including his Russian-Jewish heritage, his Saskatchewan upbringing, his interest in classical and biblical archetypes, and his concern for the political and social issues of his time. The book also highlights the way in which Mandel's work bridged the gap between modern poetry and contempoary, sometimes experimental, poetics. --
  • A scholarly introduction by Peter Webb situates Mandel's work within the contemporary poetry scene of his time and outlines the cultural, historical, and literary roots of Mandel's thematically varied and highly allusive poetry. An after word by Andrew Stubbs illumnates Mandel's importance as a poet, critic, educator, and restless tackler of ideas. --Book Jacket
