DUDEK, Louis and Michael GNAROWSKI, eds. The Making of Modern Poetry in Canada : Essential Articles on Contemporary Canadian Poetry in English. Editedby Louis Dudek and Michael Gnarowski. Toronto: The Ryerson Press, (1967). First Printing. Pp. (6),vii-ix,(3),3-303,(7). 8vo, yellow cloth with black lettering to spine. "The great surge of interest in Canadian culture and letters calls for the ready availability of critical articles, reviews, important prefaces and other documents, if the reader is to be able to trace accurately trhe founding and growth of a literary idea or movement. Yet the rise of literary schools in Canadian writing usually takes place in an atmosphere of the in-group or cenacle -- so much so, the editors point out, that 'while the broadest and most general information has been available, the interested individual cannot secure the intimate and really crucial details.'[...] In 'The Making of Modern Poetry in Canada' the editors have gathered together literary documents illustrative of the most significant developme nts in the rise of a modern idiom in Canadian poetry in English. Here are collected key articles from the past few decades that make possible the teaching and understanding of Canadian poetry in the light of such documents." - from the dustjacket.
