Canadian First World War Poetry Monographs, 1914-1918: A Bibliography

  • Author(s) / Creator(s)
  • This bibliography collates poetry written about and during the First World War by Canadian poets. Its focus is on monographs - that is, books of poetry - published between 1914 and 1918. It does not include unpublished works or poems published in serial publications; nor does it record the books of poetry published post-war. Its purpose is to provide a resource to researchers interested in the subjects of Canadian poetry and poets, and of the First World War, by facilitating the discovery of the poetry and poets recorded herein. It is the first bibliography written about Canadian First World War poetry.
    The poets and their poetry recorded in this bibliography were discovered using both online and print sources. Names were drawn from anthologies of First World War poetry and Canadian poetry. Author and subject field searches were conducted in the international online catalogue, WorldCat, and in the University of Alberta’s local online catalogue, NEOS. Results were limited to works published between 1914 and 1918. A total of 98 Canadian poets were discovered to have published 140 monographs between 1914 and 1918 that contain poetry written about the First World War.
