History

Bliss Carman was born in Fredericton, New Brunswick, in 1861. He was educated at the University of New Brunswick (B.A. 1881; M.A. 1883; LL.D. 1906) and later studied at Edinburgh and Harvard Universities. In 1890 Carman went to New York to work as a journalist. He became an editorial writer for a religious weekly, the Independent, and then wrote for various literary magazines. From 1895 to 1900 he contributed a weekly literary column to the Boston Transcript. In 1925 he was elected corresponding member of the Royal Society of Canada, and in the same year was awarded the Lorne Pierce medal by the Society for distinguished service to literature. The medal of the Poetry Society of America was awarded posthumously. In his later years he was acclaimed Canada's "poet laureate". In addition to writing poetry, Carman was also the author of several volumes of essays. He died in New Canaan, Cennecticut in 1929.
