Robert Finch Critical Essays


(Contemporary Literary Criticism)

Finch, Robert 1900–

A Canadian poet, playwright, critic, editor, and essayist, Finch writes elegant, controlled poetry. He is an accomplished musician and a respected painter, and his use of rhyme and meter evidences his formal musical training while his imagery illustrates his painterly eye. Finch won the Governor General's Literary Award in 1947 for Poems and in 1962 for Acis in Oxford. (See also Contemporary Authors, Vols. 57-60.)
