Page, P.K. “Landlady.” [1944.] The Blasted Pine: An Anthology of Satire, Invective, and Disrespectful Verse Chiefly by Canadian Writers. Ed. F.R. Scott and A.J.M. Smith. Toronto: Macmillan, 1957. 62-63.

This poem, originally published in Canadian Forum (May 1944, page 43), is interesting in being one of only four poems by three female poets included in FR Scott and AJM Smith’s The Blasted Pine: An Anthology of Satire, Invective, and Disrespectful Verse Chiefly by Canadian Writers (Toronto: Macmillan, 1957). The other three are “Landlady,” also by PK Page; “Prairie Graveyard,” by Anne Marriott, previously posted; and “The Hadleyburg Home Guard,” by Marjorie McKenzie.
