The article presents information on several books. As the editors of "Canadian Poems, 1850-1952," point out, Canada was not yet a federated nation when the U.S. still maligned by European critics for its youth. In the bare one hundred year of its literary life, Canadian poetry has been but a recent and short branch of English poetry, paralleling the movement of British and American literature from Victorian moralism and sentimentality to the lyrical exhaustion which followed, the facile leftist optimism of the thirties and early forties, and the verbal ecstasies flavored with religion which characterizes the present.
