Born of Gaelic-speaking Scots living on the shores of the Bras d'Or Lake in Cape Breton, he was ordained a Roman Catholic priest and recruited to teach at St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, where he established the first creative writing course in a Canadian university. MacSween was founder of 'The Antigonish Review', a leading literary journal and he influenced the careers of writers like Alistair MacLeod, Sheldon Currie and Lyndon [sic] MacIntyre, as well as thousands of students from several generations. Shortly after his death, MacSween was eulogized as Canada's 'great unknown poet'.
