Welcome to this cyberplace, set up as a space for news and reviews of A Gentleman of Pleasure and occasional jottings about John Glassco. Five years have now passed since publication, and I've moved on to other projects, but I'm leaving this up with the thought that those drawn to Glassco's writing will find something of interest.

'Equisses in [sic] Plein Air' (1958)

From the Spring 1958 number of The Fiddlehead, these Saint-Denys-Garneau poems marked Glassco's debut as a translator. Sadly, the event was marred by a sloppy editor. Glassco tore his pages from the magazine – discarding the rest – and corrected the errors. He also made several revisions, some of which stand in his 1975 Complete Poems of Saint-Denys-Garneau.
