Raymond Knister of Canada (1899-1932) enjoys a literary reputation that stems almost exclusively from his short and longer fiction. He published widely and often during his short life, including two novels, dozens of stories, dozens of essays, and even more reviews, and was closely associated in Canada with our first modern novelists, and writers like Morley Callaghan, Robert McAlman, Gertrude Stein and Eugene Jolas, who appeared in the Paris Journal, This Quarter, where Knister¹s first work was published. Knister¹s poetry, despite three collections of his work, remains largely overlooked and unanthologized.
