First Cdn Poet Translated into Italian, J Pivato, Sept 2 06

Thank you Giorgio for your kind words
about Irving Layton. You remind me
of this poet who taught me creative
writing at York University in 1970.
As you point out he was the first
Canadian poet translated into Italian.
He did much to promote Canadian Literature and identity.

It is appropriate then that you,
Poet Laureat of Toronto, should make
us remember this poet from Montreal.
-- Joseph Pivato, Edmonton
