Title
As Though Life Mattered: Leo Kennedy’s Story
Abstract
In Montreal in the 1920s and 1930s, Leo Kennedy (1907-2000) and a small group of young writers transformed Canadian poetry with enthusiasm, talent and the creation of a modernist alternative press. Kennedy co-founded the short-lived poetry magazine, Canadian Mercury, in 1928 with Frank R. Scott, the first such Canadian magazine dedicated to modernist poetry. Among other reasons, Kennedy is remembered for his 1928 critical manifesto published in the Canadian Mercury titled The Future of Canadian Literature.
