Description

Focusing on the importance of traditional and popular poetry for the poets, the presenters, and the local audience, Greenhill examines the activity of creating and using poetry in a community context. She gives numerous examples of Ontario folk verse, among them twenty-one poems about Canadian runner Terry Fox, whose battle with cancer inspired many folk poets. True Poetry pioneers the examination of folk poetry in Canada and adds to a limited body of scholarship on the topic. It will be of interest to anyone concerned with Canadian society, traditional folklore, and popular culture.
