Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts (1860–1943)

Roberts, Charles George Douglas. A Canadian poet; born in Douglas, NB, Jan. 10, 1860; died in 1943. He was an earnest advocate of Canadian nationalism, and such of his poetical compositions as relate to this and other distinctly Canadian subjects are particularly excellent. He published: ‘Orion, and Other Poems’ (1880), and ‘In Divers Tones’ (1887); and edited ‘Poems of Wild Life’ in the series of ‘Canterbury Poets’ (1888). In 1897 appeared his ‘History of Canada’ and ‘The Kindred of the Wild.’ (See Critical and Biographical Introduction).
