Publisher: Dundurn Release date: 2014-03-14

Description

Voyageur Classics is a series of new versions of Canadian classics, with added material and special introductions. In this bundle we find two classic works of the art of the Canadian essay. Charles G.D. Roberts was a distinguished writer of his time who published more than forty volumes of poetry, romance fiction, and nature writing - making him one of the most popular writers of his time. He pioneered the animal story in which he went beyond surface elements of nature and endowed his animal "e;characters"e; with qualities of feeling and intelligence that brought them closer to their human cousins. Roberts' career as a writer transcended his Canadian roots and he was internationally known and popular in America and England. Arthur James Marshall Smith - prize-winning poet, essayist, influential anthologist, and critic - died in 1980. His last book, The Classic Shade: Selected Poems, on which Selected Writings is based, stands as his final intention in the world of literature. To this long out of print book the editor has added original material by Smith in which he defined and advanced modernism in Canadian writing. Includes Selected Writings, A.J.M. Smith The Kindred of the Wild
