The White Savannahs: The First Study of Canadian Poetry from a Contemporary Viewpoint
The White Savannahs, originally published in 1936, is the first study of Canadian poetry from a modern point of view. It contains essays on Archibald Lampman, Marjorie Pickthall, E.J. Pratt, Leo Kennedy, A.M. Klein, A.J.M. Smith, F.R. Scott, Marie Le Franc, and Dorothy Livesay. The contributions are based on a series of analytical essays originally published in the Canadian Forum and in the University of Toronto Quarterly. Professor Collin's work added much to the establishment of a new climate of opinion among readers and publishers of poetry in Canada.
