This is a representative collection of the writings of a neglected Canadian author, William Wilfred Campbell (1858-1918). Among the 112 poems in William Wilfred Campbell: Selected Poetry and Essays are the familiar a€œIndian Summera€ and a€œHow One Winter Came in the Lake Region, a€ along with many less well-known love poems, patriotic songs, and occasional poems. Some twenty manuscript pieces are published here for the first time. The notorious a€œMermaid Inna€ essay in which Campbell refers to the mythical nature of the cross is included, and so is the letter of self-justification that Campbell wrotea€”but never senta€”to the editor of the Globe. Here, too, are speeches, essays published in The Week and the Ottawa Evening Journal, and significant sections from Campbells unfinished treatise on evolution, a€œThe Tragedy of Man.a€ By the time Campbell died on New Yeara€™s Day 1918, shifting values had begun to turn critical opinion against his work. Now William Wilfred Campbell: Selected Poetry and Essays will enable Canadians to appreciate Campbells art and to recognize his place in the development of Canadian thought.This is a representative collection of the writings of a neglected Canadian author, William Wilfred Campbell (1858-1918).
