Description
This collection includes 24 letters by Canadian-American poet Bliss Carman (1861-1929), written between 1905 and 1928, as well as 40 pieces of ephemera.
Background
Bliss Carman (1861-1929) was a regional poet of both the Maritime Provinces, where he was born, and the New England area of the United States, where he passed away. Between 1893 and 1905 Carman published almost twenty volumes of verse, some of which were a collaborative effort with Richard Hovey (1864-1900). Carman also wrote prose works on various subjects and, from 1890 onwards, worked as an editor for numerous journals in New York City.
