Beethoven - SaskBooksSaskBooks



Product Description

Whenever he was working away from home, Moose Jaw railwayman and poet, Jim McLean searched for Beethoven in the Canadian landscape and found a boy suffering abuse at the hand of his father, the passions of a man who loved many women but never wed, his isolation and anger caused by his loss of hearing. Through skillful use of techniques learned from William Carlos Williams, among others, each poem is a script for performances and a piano that Jim McLean plays, sometimes symphonically, sometimes in ragtime, sometimes in blues, but always from the heart.
