A.F. Moritz, originally uploaded by johnwmacdonald.

Another of the three Canadian poets up for the Griffin Prize and another great shot by John W. MacdDonald. This is a well-deserved nomination for a poet with a consistent voice and style and a long apprenticeship. He isn’t a poet that speaks to me personally, but I can appreciate the craft and I can see why so many younger Canadian poets find him an elegant role model. There are few poems of Moritz’ online, but the Griffin site has one.
