P.K. Page: 1916 - 2010
I was sad to hear the news this afternoon that famed Canadian poet P.K. Page has passed away at the age of 93. I'm a big fan of her collected work, The Hidden Room: Volume One, published by the Porcupine's Quill in 1997. (Question: does anyone know if the Quill ever published any subsequent volumes?) I also had the pleasure of reviewing Page's short story collection Up on the Roof for a newspaper in Guelph about three years ago. We lost a great poet today, a keen observer of the world in which we live. May she rest in peace.
