About this product
- DescriptionPauline Johnson was an unusual and unique presence on the literary scene during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. A female voice among an almost entirely male writing community, she drew on her gender and her unique origins -- half-aboriginal, half-English -- developing a unique perspective in her lyrical poems and her recounting of Native myths and legends. She captivated her audiences on both sides of the Atlantic by infusing drama into her readings. Her writings assembled here represent poems from her collection Flint and Feather, coupled with her stories and legends of British Columbia that appeared in Legends of Vancouver. Although her life was cut short by illness, Pauline Johnson, or Tekahionwake as she was kwn to her people, has been the subject of several biographies and remains a writer of compelling interest to the present day.
- Author BiographyPauline Johnson (1861 1913) was Canada's first Native author. Her most famous collection of verse, Flint and Feather, went into many printings and was successfully followed by three volumes of sketches and short fiction, The Moccasin Maker, Legends of Vancouver, and The Shagganappi. Michael Gnarowski co-edited The Making of Modern Poetry in Canada, compiled The Concise Bibliography of English-Canadian Literature, and edited the Critical Views on Canadian Writers Series for McGraw-Hill Ryerson. He has contributed to many reference works, foremost amongst which are The Canadian Encyclopedia and The Oxford Companion to Twentieth-Century Poetry. Presently, he is series editor for the re-issue of Hugh MacLennan's novels by McGill-Queen's University Press.
