John Sutherland Essays, Controversies and Poems edited by Miriam Waddington (New Canadian Library N81) front coverSeries Two

From the Back Cover:

Consistently neglected and frequently attacked during his lifetime, John Sutherland is an important figure in the development of Canadian literature and literary criticism. An inseparable part of his story is the development of First Statement, the little magazine first mimeographed in 1943, and later printed on a hand=press, which first published Irving Layton, Kay Smith and Miriam Waddington.

In this imaginative selection of John Sutherland’s work, Miriam Waddington has presented an evocative study of this remarkable and controversial personality, helping to establish him in his proper niche in the cultural history of our country. Mrs. Waddington, herself a well-known Canadian poet, teaches at York University.
