review Á A Wild Peculiar Joy The Selected Poems Less and universal Drawn from his entire body of work and now reissued in this handsomely redesigned volume this edition includes a new introduction by Sam Solecki and selected short excerpts from Irving Layton’s writings on the craft of poetry. Reading and studying some of his poems for a class I thought I didn t like Irving Layton His poems are often beautiful expressive and interestingly crafted but what they suggest of his personality wasn t appealing to me and so I was about ready to strike him off my list of writers to get to know better But then I went to an event celebrating the centenary of his birth and heard a diverse group of people read a good variety of his poems primarily from this volume Somehow what I found to be brash and alienating when reading on my own and dissecting with an indifferent group of classmates became intensely engaging and evocative when read aloud by others I still might find Layton s personality abrasive and frustrating but I know now not to let that get in the way of exploring his poetry and am looking forward to a re read or rather a first proper read through of this collection 13 March12
