In celebration of his 70th birthday, Ronsdale Press is pleased to release Robin Skelton's The Edge of Time. In this new collection of poems, Skelton walks the edge, looking forwards and backwards. Meditating on roads taken and not taken, he employs his poetic gift to consider our relation to time: how we are both immersed in it, and yet able to step through to other dimensions. One of Canada's finest translators, Skelton also includes a series of translations of such international modernist masters as Rilke, Baudelaire, and Yuli Daniel.

Acknowledged as one of Canada's leading men of letters, Robin Skelton grew up in England. During World War II, he served in India and Ceylon with the R.A.F. In 1963, he emigrated to Canada to teach at the University of Victoria, where he founded the Creative Writing Department. Renowned as a scholar and critic of art and literature, he has become an authority on poetic forms and the Irish drama. In 1991, he retired from the University of Victoria and is now a full-time writer.
