E.J. Pratt : letters by E. J Pratt( )

9 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 659 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The letters take us into his "workshop," illuminating the research behind his distinctive documentary long poems and the social nature of his creative production. They also reveal the complex network of writers, critics, artists and political figures of which Pratt was a part, the evolution of the Canadian book trade from the 1920s through to the early 1960s, and the emergence of radio (and specifically, of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation) as a tool for forging national identity. Pratt's correspondence both confirms the public persona of one of Canada's first literary celebrities and provides glimpses of the private character behind the mask."--
