Abbey, Lloyd

Entry updated 25 October 2021. Tagged: Author.

(1943-    ) Canadian teacher and author, much of whose poetry dramatizes the natural world, as does his sf novel The Last Whales (1989), in which whales (and some dolphins who have escaped from their African-based military training academy) live realistically conceived (non-speaking) lives in the oceans of a Near Future post-Disaster world. The tale advances at a dignified pace; it does not end in a state of optimism about the future. [JC]
