Author Bio for Pratt, E. J. (Edwin John Dove)

Edwin John "E.J." Pratt (1882-1964) was a famous Canadian poet. He was born in Newfoundland. His father was a Methodist minister who moved around different outport communities preaching to fishers, whalers, and sealers. Pratt himself worked as a preacher and like his father worked in remote communities in Ontario and in the Prairies. In 1913, he attended Victoria College in Toronto where he excelled at divinity and philosophy. He eventually became a professor at Victoria College teaching philosophy and English. Pratt published his first collection of poetry in 1923 called "Newfoundland verse". His reputation as a major Canadian poet rests on his narrative poems which mythologize the Canadian experience. He was a three-time winner of the Governor General's Award for poetry and has been called "the foremost Canadian poet of the first half of the 20th century." (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
