Name of creator
Milton Acorn was a Canadian poet born on March 30, 1923 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island. He mainly worked as a carpenter by trade, but also wrote poetry influenced by Marxist ideas as well as experiences from the working-class. Acorn published various collections of his writing and gained recognition from fellow poets for his nationalism and activism. Throughout his life, Acorn lived in various cities across Canada including Montreal, Toronto, and Vancouver before moving back to Charlottetown, where he died on August 20, 1986.
