Hine, (William) Daryl 1936–

Hine is a Canadian poet, novelist, dramatist, editor, and travel writer. His early poems are generally formal and tightly constructed, while his more recent works are done in a variety of forms and exhibit a more open poetic style. Eroticism is a recurrent motif throughout his poetry, and the duality of art and life a pervading theme. (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 1-4, rev. ed.)
