QUOTES OF NOTE

Glengarry

“mclennan is a poet of place, always finding his voice out of the material of his surroundings, the continuity of its existence through history.” — Ottawa Xpress

“…exists as a paradisiacal, Elysium field of memory and escape…the county of Glengarry is beautifully presented as a post-Wordsworthian (almost neo-Wordsworthian) oasis.”
Canadian Literature
