Poetry Online?[edit]

I take it that utoronto site is really the only source of collected MacEwen poems easily found on the net? Perhaps it's a matter of copyright or something, but I do find her poetry amazingly difficult to find on the internet considering its quality and prominence. In the event someone finds a (legal and proper) set of e-MacEwen, a link to it would be greatly appreciated. 07:29, 11 September 2006 (UTC)

The reason for the scarcity of MacEwen poetry on the Internet is that all of it is still under copyright, and the estate is very vigilant (as is their right). I have contacted them in the past to ask for clearance for a photo or an excerpt here and the answer has been a polite but firm NO. Clevelander96 (talk) 20:36, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

you don't figure if you follow the external links you rather quickly come to this information? Feldercarb (talk) 22:21, 4 May 2010 (UTC)

I don't know. I suggest you follow your own advice, and then when and if you find the relevant citations, you add them to the article. Dlabtot (talk) 13:36, 5 May 2010 (UTC)

How about removing the "stub" class tags? Feldercarb (talk) 01:45, 16 May 2010 (UTC)

Nov 2013[edit]

Why is this article tagged "This article contains wording that promotes the subject in a subjective manner without imparting real information...." Please point out examples.

Also can we remove the "req photo" tag? -- there are two pretty good photos in the article.Feldercarb (talk) 19:34, 2 November 2013 (UTC)

Also can the various "stub class" flags be removed? How long does it have to be to not be a stub? Feldercarb (talk) 19:36, 2 November 2013 (UTC)
