• COLLIN, W.E: The White Savannahs
COLLIN, W.E. The White Savannahs. Toronto: The Macmillian Company of Canada, 1936. First Edition. 224x149mm. Hard Cover. Almost Fine / Almost Fine. 288pp. Collin's collection of critical essays on nine Canadian poets (Lampman, Pickthall, Pratt, Le Franc, Livesay, Kennedy, Scott, Klein, Smith) that is considered the first book of Modernist criticism in English Canadian Literature. I'm quite sure that no one cares about what this book has to offer in this day of glancing back about 20 years or so (tops, since the general currency in critical work is more or less a form of socially mediasized naval gazing), yet this remains historically an important text, and here it is, complete with original paper jacket as issued, uncommon thus.
