George Melnyk Elegy for a Poem Garden previous next   Ekstasis Editions

In Elegy for a Poem Garden George Melnyk has created a virtual garden of poetry as a tangible record of a temporary garden of visual poems created in response to a visit to the home of visual poet Ian Hamilton Findlay. "The visit," writes Melnyk, "changed my poetic life. I was instantly inspired to go forth and do likewise."
