So Many Boys All Doing Right by Sean Howard

Captain Charles Hamilton Sorley died on October 13, 1915, shot by a sniper while preparing to lead his men ‘over the top’ at the Battle of Loos in France. Aged only 20, he left behind a small number of posthumously published poems and a larger volume of remarkable letters, selected, introduced and edited by his parents. In this book, poet and essayist Sean Howard pays tribute to a writer esteemed by Robert Graves as “one of the three poets of importance”—along with Wilfred Owen and Isaac Rosenberg—“killed during the war.”

This book was handprinted on a letterpress in a limited edition of 150 copies. The text of this book was composed in Linotype Trump Mediäval and printed on a Vandercook proof press. The text paper is Mohawk Superfine; the wrapper paper is Saint Armand Old Masters. Dyan Hatanaka cut the illustration in linoleum. The book was edited, designed, typeset, printed & bound by Andrew Steeves at Gaspereau Press.

Sean Howard is the author of two collections of poetry, Local Calls (2009) and Incitements (2011), and a work that mixes prose and poetry, The Photographer’s Last Picture (2016). As well as appearing in numerous literary journals, his work has been featured in The Best Canadian Poetry in English in both 2011 and 2014. Howard lives in Main-à-Dieu, Cape Breton, and is an adjunct professor of political science at Cape Breton University.
