Thursday, September 24th, 2015: Friends of the Library AGM & David Bentley, Archibald Lampman and Episkopon: The Apprenticeship of a Canadian Poet

David Bentley, the Carl F.

He is the founding and continuing editor of Canadian Poetry: Studies, Documents, Reviews (the leading journal in the field), the Canadian Poetry Press, and http://canadianpoetry.org/. He has been awarded the Ontario Premier’s Discovery award and most recently the 2015 Killam Prize for Humanities. His commitment to teaching has been recognized by his 3M National Teaching Fellowship.

His books include The Confederation Group of Canadian Poets, 1880-1897 (2004), Canadian Architexts: Essays on Literature and Architecture in Canada, 1759 -2006 (2009), By Necessity and Indirection: Essays on Modernism in Canada (2015), and scholarly editions of Stephen Leacock’s Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town (2006), John Howison’s Sketches of Upper Canada (2012), and Archibald Lampman’s Untitled Fragment of a Novel (2014).

He has essays forthcoming on Alice Munro, Gabrielle Roy, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, and Mean Girls.
