Of late Arthur Stringer has been resorting to free verse, a form of poetry that does not appeal to all readers. But whatever the merits of vers libre, he assuredly is qualified to indulge his fancy in it. His music is strong and that some of it is from the depths of his nature is evident from the present collection. For his material he has gone to the earth and the skies and he peers even into the future. In addition to the verses there is "An Afterword" which treats of the development of free verse. There are more than threescore poems of free verse in the book of some 125 pages.

Author Bio for Stringer, Arthur

Author Image

Arthur Stringer (February 26, 1874 – September 13, 1950) was a Canadian novelist, screenwriter, and poet who later moved to the United States.

He published 45 works of fiction and 15 other books, in addition to writing numerous filmscripts and articles.

Stringer was popular in his day for his crime fiction and his wilderness adventures, but he wrote in many genres, from social realism (his "Prairie" trilogy, 1915–1921) to psychological fiction (The Wine of Life (1921)). He even wrote early science fiction novels, The Story Without a Name (1924) with Russell Holman, and The Woman Who Couldn't Die (1929).

Much of his writing was for films. Film scripts on which he worked include The Perils Of Pauline (1914), The Hand Of Peril (1916), The House Of Intrigue (1919), Unseeing Eyes (1923), Empty Hands (1924), The Canadian (1926), The Purchase Price (1932), The Lady Fights Back (1937), Buck Benny Rides Again (1940) and The Iron Claw (1941).--Wikipedia.
