Note from Peter Riley: One of the most exciting and varied line-ups ever presented at the CCCP - major discoveries of both young and senior poets from somewhat "cloaked" areas like Canada and Australia, a whole phalanx of new French poets . . .
      As for the British, it's typical of us to have one of the greats of the old guard along with two or three others hardly published at all. CCCP stands ahead of everything.
