Lecture. It is a curious fact that three of the chief figures of Canadian poetry in English were all born in the space of eleven years, and that all three were students at the University of New Brunswick. Pierce discusses these three famous poets: Charles G. D. Roberts (1860-1943), Bliss Carman (1861-1929), and Francis Sherman (1871-1926). [Suggest a different description.]

Author Image

Lorne Pierce (1890-1961) was a Canadian publisher and editor. Born in eastern Ontario, he was educated at Queen's University, the University of Toronto and the Wesleyan Theological School in Montreal. He was ordained as a Methodist Church minister and later became a United Church minister. In 1920 he was appointed literary adviser at Ryerson Press in Toronto. Two years later he became editor, a position he remained in until 1960. During his tenure he fostered the careers of several well known authors including E.J. Pratt, Earle Birney, Dorothy Livesay and A.J.M. Smith. He authored and published numerous books on Canadian literature and history. He instigated three series of short books on literature to promote Canadian literature to the general public. He created the Lorne Pierce award for the recognition of excellence in Canadian literature and criticism which is now administered by the Royal Society of Canada. He was also a leading founder of the Canadian Writers' Foundation. During his life he amassed an important collection of Canadian books, letters and manuscripts which he donated to Queen's University. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
