Whenever he was working away from home, Moose Jaw railwayman and poet Jim McLean searched for Betthoven in the Canadian landscape. He found a boy suffering abuse, the passions of a man who loved many women but never wed, and he discovered isolation and anger caused by hearing loss. Through skillful use of techniques learned from William Carlos Williams, among others, each poem is a script for performance.
