From the Back Cover:

CANADIAN POETRY FROM THE BEGINNINGS THROUGH THE FIRST WORLD WAR is the only anthology to present a full history of Canadian poetry from the early 1600s through the expansiveness of poetic activity during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and into the flourishing world of Canadian Poetry in the first decades of the twentieth century.

From their extensive research in archives and libraries, the editors have collected works of more than fifty poets. In addition to ample representation of the verse of Isabella Valancy Crawford, W. W. Campbell, Charles G. G. Roberts, Bliss Carman, Archibald Lampman, and Duncan Campbell Scott, the anthology also contains several complete long narrative poems, including Oliver Goldsmith’s The Rising Village and Crawford’s Malcolm’s Katie.
