ELLE Man (Canada) - - CULTURE -

When Cana­dian poet (and “voice of the na­tion”) Al Purdy died, he left be­hind an A-frame house along the shore of a lake in On­tario’s Prince Ed­ward County that his writ­ing so per­fectly chan­nelled. A decade and a bit later, a who’s who of our coun­try’s arts scene (At­wood, On­daatje, Boy­den et al.) re­turn to the home site on a mis­sion to re­store the struc­ture as a writer’s re­treat and also hon­our the com­pli­cated, quixotic man who lived and wrote so much of our most beloved po­etry there (in the­atres now).
