Author Code: OCGR

Born: Jan. 10, 1860 - Douglas, New brunswick, Canada

Died: Nov. 26, 1943 - Toronto, Canada

Educated at the University of New Brunswick, Roberts received his BA degree in 1879. In 1880, he published Orion and Other Poems, a book of verse that was well-received. Roberts taught school in New Brunswick for some years and worked as an editor for The Week magazine until taking a professorship at University of King's College in Windsor, Nova Scotia. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1893. He left teaching in 1895 to concentrate on his writing and the following year published The Forge in the Forest, his first novel. He left his wife in 1897 and moved to New York where he continued to publish. He moved to Paris in 1907 and subsequently to London in 1911. He served in the British Army as a private in the First World War and was later commissioned and worked at the Canadian War Records Office. He returned to Canada in 1925 and settled in Toronto. The following year he was awarded the Lorne Pierce Medal for his distinguished service to Canadian literature. He was knighted in1935. Roberts has often been referred to as the father of Canadian literature and was an inspiration to many others, including his cousin Bliss Carman. In addition to his many volumes of verse, Roberts was a master short story author, concentrating much of his work on the animal kingdom and nature. His other works include In Divers Tones (1886), Songs of the Common Day (1893), Ruben Dare's Shad Boat (1895), Earth's Enigmas (1896), The Heart of the Ancient Wood (1900), The Kindred of the Wild (1902), The Heart That Knows (1906), Hoof and Claw (1913), Canals in Flanders (1918), The Vagrant of Time (1927), The Secret Trails (1930) and Canada Speaks of Britain and Other Poems of the War (1941).
