Editing Modernism in Canada

They did not wait till

miracles of science

Unstopped the naked ears

for supersonics

The death-knell of Art is

sounding! Boom! Doom! -

Boom! Doom!


Art is degenerating into an

accessory of all sorts of

propaganda

America, with Californian claws,

clutches the Pacific, and now

she makes her voices for

frantic appeal. They roar like

Niagara. They shake the

synthetic hills. The sand of

catastrophe is loosed and every

breast is marked with doom.

He doesn't know you can't catch

glory on a hook and hold on to it.


That when you fish for the glory

you catch the darkness too.


That if you hook twice the glory

you hook twice the fear.

Our passions are shaping

the future spontaneously,

unpredictably, compulsively.

Produce Editions Participate If we are to continue scholarship and teaching in the field of Canadian modernist studies, there is now more than ever before an urgent need to produce editions of these works and to regenerate public interest in this formative period of Canadian literature whose visibility has been fading as fast as ink on foolscap.
