Introduction

(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

F(rancis) R(eginald) Scott 1899–

Canadian poet, editor, and nonfiction writer.

Although Desmond Pacey predicted in 1958 that Scott, an ardent socialist, "will be remembered … primarily for his social satire," Scott's poetry has deepened in later years; his evaluation of technology's impact on nature is thoughtfully conceived.
