Author Bio for MacDonald, Wilson Pugsley

Wilson Pugsley MacDonald (1880-1967) was one of Canada's lesser known poets. Born in Cheapside, Ontario, he worked in a variety of jobs mainly because trying to sell poetry was difficult. At times he worked as an actor, composer, newspaper reporter, cabin-boy and seaman. His poetry satisfied public taste with its romantic sensibility. His poetry is rooted in the 19th century but written with an abundance of colour and musical quality. He toured the country in the 1920s where he recited his poetry on stage. His personal shyness gave way to a dynamic stage presence where he hummed, chanted and sang his poetry, making it come alive for his audiences. (Oxford Companion to Canadian Literature)
