“Dean is a combination of thought and torment that has made him write more than a baker’s dozen of fine poems.. he might produce a collection that could astound us all.” – Irving Layton

(Irving Layton, one of Canada’s foremost poets, nominated twice for the Nobel Prize for Literature; teacher, friend and mentor to Leonard Cohen, whom Leonard called “Canada’s greatest poet” and the man to whom Leonard dedicated his latest book.)

“This is the poet I’ve been telling you about…” Gwen MacEwen introducing me to Marian Engel, and Judith Merrill.

Graduated from the University of Guelph after a long trying ordeal (for them) – actually responsible for the idea of creative study programs there after contending with me
