Academic Festival Overtures

About The Book

From Simon & Schuster, Academic Festival Overtures is Daryl Hine's poem. The work evokes the passage from adolescence through puberty, the discovery of vocation and sexuality, and is an important contribution to gender and queer studies in Canada, as well as literary history.

Originally published in 1985, Daryl Hine's Academic Festival Overtures is a rare feat of formal and imaginative brilliance, a long confessional poem and bildungsromans, recounting the author's own fourteenth year in 1950s British Columbia.
