The Collected Writings of Louis Riel / Les Écrits complets de Louis Riel, Volume 4 – Poetry.


Louis Riel stands as a powerful symbol at the heart of Canada’s consciousness. An educated, sensitive, and perceptive man, his extensive writings encompass many of the issues that still dominate the political, social, and cultural arenas in Canada. This critical, definitive edition of his writings contributes to a more comprehensive and meaningful assessment of his character and his role in Canadian history. Volume 4 includes nationalistic tributes, political satire, fables, love poetry, songs, and verses composed in the final days of Riel’s life in prison.
