About the Author
Clint Bruce holds the Canada Research Chair in Acadian and Transnational Studies at Université Sainte-Anne in Nova Scotia.
This handsome, thematically arranged collection of 79 poems... adds significantly to the corpus of French-language poetry published in 19th-century Louisiana.... [Bruce's] extensive historical and contextual introduction and the biographies of the poets are invaluable resources. The detailed notes on translation add further useful information. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduates through faculty; general readers. --author of CHOICE
