    • Abstract:
      In this article the author pays tribute to poet Don Coles for his literary works in poetry, by reviewing a few lines of one of his poems. He describes that in 1993 the journal "The Porcupine's Quill" published Coles' "Forest of the Medieval World," which was the winner of the 1993 Governor General's Award for Poetry in England. According to Coles' thought, public readings and any sort of public appearance were little short of hucksterism and deeply detrimental to poetry's dignity. The owner of the journal, in which the poem was published, has suggested that Coles deliberately used to avoid any elegance of language or rhythm.
