Overview

Courageous poet, tireless critic, and leading anthologist of his time, Arthur James Marshall Smith is recognized as one of the most influential and vital forces in Canadian literature. Instrumental in both defining a Canadian tradition in poetry and in promoting the modernist movement in Canadian literature, Smith was a very public figure. This prominent writer, however, produced impersonal yet intensely private poetry. Charting and evaluating the overall development of his work, this book provides fresh insights into Smith`s poems.
