- This beautifully compiled 215 page soft cover book is a collection of 43 poems by Arthur Antonius Anderson, Swedish Canadian writer (1934). Translated from old Swedish and written in both Swedish and English, his poetry was highly praised by Watson Kirkconnell, a brilliant linguist, translator and supporter of the energy of the immigrant presence to the fabric of Canada. Kirkconnell was repeatedly a Nobel Laureate nominee.
Anderson's poetry reveals a compassionate heart towards all and great reverence for the gifts of ancestors. He poignantly reveals to us a strong spirit, full of humour, longing and hope for a better world.
