Unpaginated. 48 pp. "This poem gives me an enormously visual picture of an actual event; it conveys in very few words a character portrayal of considerable power; and its universality means in my terms that is has contemporary relevance. The Master of Horse is a man who has perceived too much of the heart of conquest and who knows the darkness at its core - consider Gary Geddes to be one of the best of the younger Canadian poets." - Margaret Laurence.
