It is indeed little, and out of fifteen poets, only two are women: Kay Smith and P.K. Page.
Gustafson, Ralph. A Little Anthology of Canadian Poetry (Norfolk, CT: New Directions, 1943).
Here’s the second of the three poems that were published in the Poets’ Corner in April 1939, along side Beatrice Rowley’s article about Victoria, BC. The third, entitled “Easter,” will for obvious reasons appear later this year.
Fredelle Bruser later became Fredelle Bruser Maynard.
Bruser, Fredelle. “After the Rain.” Winnipeg Free Press (8 April 1939): 6.
Moffat, Gertrude MacGregor. “Poppies.” A Book of Verses (Toronto: Macmillan, 1924): 30.
Tanis [Hilda A. Davies]. Overgrown Trails (Calgary, AB: John Dichmont, n.d.).
We know almost nothing about Tanis, except that her real name was Hilda A. Davies. Early on in our project, years and years ago, I stumbled across her chapbook of poetry, Overgrown Trails, so now, finally, I would like to share it with you.
Winlow, Alice. The Miracle of Roses (Vancouver, BC: Chalmers, 1926).
This is quite a long title to post here, but as there is no other digital copy, and I had SFU’s edition in my hand, I couldn’t resist. Some of the pages are blank, so I have not included them (so don’t think that a page number missing means content is missing).
As usual, I have posted page images here as well as the link to a searchable pdf.
