Most widely held works by John B Lee
The hockey player sonnets by John B Lee( Book )

Hired hands by John B Lee( Book )

7 editions published between 1986 and 1987 in English and Undetermined and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Shortlisted for the 1987 Milton Acorn Memorial People’s Poetry Prize The hired hand of these poems was a stupid man. Nowadays he would be known as one of the employable retarded. Tom was lucky enough to find work and a home with the family of John B. Lee, people who understood him. And John B. Lee was lucky to have his whole life coloured by the presence of an apparently limited man who turns out to have been a poem. John B. Lee has with great tact and without a shred of patronizing found the words to make this inarticulate man live. Hired Hands is a remarkable accomplishment
Variations on Herb by John B Lee( Book )

7 editions published in 1993 in English and Undetermined and held by 73 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Variations on Herb is the latest in a lengthening series of books that emanate from the south-western Ontario farm of John B. Lee's childhood. The focus of Variations is Herb Lee, John B's grandfather (and an absolutely unforgettable curmudgeon) but the background of rural Ontario is also made palpable entirely without indulgent explanation. This grain, this rich vein that appears in book after book, may well be inexhaustible; the cumulative effect certainly has few parallels in Canadian writing

6 editions published in 1982 in English and Undetermined and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A long poem dramatizing the clash in visions of the land which occurs when a white settler builds on a sacred Iroquois site
Rediscovered sheep by John B Lee( Book )

6 editions published in 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rediscovered Sheep takes its origin generations ago when an ancestor of John B. Lee began to raise Lincoln sheep in Ontario. John B. may never take up his inheritance as Master of the Flock, but his understanding of sheep husbandry is woven into the woolly fabric of his work. The first poems in Rediscovered Sheep are about real modern-day shepherds and actual sheep. Then the sheep get loose. They spill out into human roles -- policeman, guest speaker, ballerina -- which they occupy exuberantly and sometimes with a disquieting naturalness. Rediscovered Sheep is a realistic/fantasy pastoral for

Godspeed by John B Lee( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 52 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When William Shakespeare wrote The Tempest, some scholars argue that it was inspired by the adventures and misadventures of Bartholomew Gosnold's first voyage. Gosnold, a relative of Sir Francis Bacon, and educated at Cambridge, decided at an early age to seek out the new world of North America and establish English colonies. His ship was called Godspeed. It is argued by some specialists that Gosnold was one of the most important and influential figures in the history of 17th century English explorers and colonizers. His founding of Jamestown, Virginia was the first successful permanent English colony on North American soil. But the choice proved to be a very unhealthy one and one fraught with illness. Gosnold died there. His skeleton was only recently discovered near the fort of old Jamestown. John B. Lee's narrative tale brings alive this historical figure, painting a rich and true image of him and his struggles. Book jacket."--BOOK JACKET
