Down with the Rigidly Righteous:
The Poems of John Dunham
edited by John R. Elliott.
This is a collection of over 200 poems by an incredible – but little known figure - from New Brunswick's past. John Dunham (1868-1944) was a keen observer and his witty, insightful poems create a vivid depiction of life along the river in Kings and Queens Counties. He was a jack-of-all-trades, working at the Quarries in Hampstead, as a lumberman, and as a deckhand onboard the many steamships that piloted the Saint John River. His poems are a reflection of this life, and of the wonderful stories to be found in the day-to-day lives of people in this area of New Brunswick. This new collection will surprise and delight readers from the area – and those who just enjoy a well-written verse.
