Title
Lily Lewis: Sketches of a Canadian Journalist. A Biocritical Study
Abstract
Lily Lewis of Montreal wrote under three pen names: “L.L.”, the author of several articles that appeared in 1896 in the Toronto-based The Week; “Louis Lloyd”, who wrote for The Week and the Montreal Daily Star between 1887 and 1891; and “Lily Lewis Rood”, who wrote a monograph and some poetry and sketches in American and French journals until about 1896. Her hugely popular column, “Montreal Letter”, was for some time a staple in The Week. She also accompanied writer Sara Jeannette Duncan on a journey around the world that later became the subject of Duncan’s fictional work in which Lewis was immortalized as a character. Lewis was diagnosed as insane and hospitalized in Britain for the last fifteen years of her life.
