The Life and Words of Edward LaceyBook - 2011
Edward Lacey was one of the rare North American writers who intimately knew the Third World in the latter twentieth century. A superb speaker and translator of multiple languages, Lacey was a gifted teacher in Mexico, Trinidad, Brazil, Thailand, and Indonesia. While he was a college student in the 1950s, his poems pioneered forthrightly gay themes. A remarkable Canadian poet, he is among the few who are known beyond our borders.
