Description - Alcyone (Dodo Press) by Archibald Lampman

Archibald Lampman (1861-1899) was a Canadian poet. He was born at Morpeth, Ontario, a village near Chatham. He was one of the Confederation Poets and was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1895. He is widely regarded as Canada's finest 19th century English language poet. Lampman's poetry concerns Canada's rural life and the wonders of nature and can be compared to British romantic and nature poetry contemporary to his life. Lampman's ability to write detailed, meaningful, poems that depicted traditional Canadian and Native American life was one of his greatest triumphs as a poet and probably one of the reasons why his work has had lasting import in the Canadian canon. Among his famous works are: Among the Millet (1888), Lyrics of Earth (1895), Alcyone (1899) Happiness (1925), and At the Long Sault (1943).
