Why Are You So Sad? Selected Poems

His life in Canadian poetry has spanned five decades, and David W. McFadden is still going strong. This selection from his career to date brings back into print many of the greatest poems from nearly two dozen books. Chosen and introduced by fellow poet Stuart Ross, in full collaboration with the author, these poems reaffirm McFadden's status as one of Canada's most gratifying, ineffable, and necessary poets.
