Long inscription on the flyleaf by Charles G.D. Roberts, explaining the importance of the poem and Roberts was with Carman when he wrote this poetry book.
William Bliss Carman (poet, essayist, journalist) was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick on 15 April 1861. As an integral member of the Confederation School of Canadian poetry, Carman’s work helped to shape a poetic voice in Canada. He was strongly influenced by the Romanticism of the nineteenth century and is best remembered as a lyrical poet of the Maritime landscape.
