We are indebted to David Bentley for his invitation to edit this new edition of Tecumseh and for the model and standards established in his own contributions to the Canadian Poetry Press Series. Library staff at the Toronto Public Library and the libraries of Queen’s University, the University of Toronto and the University of Guelph have been consistently helpful. Special thanks are also owed to Michael Hurley, Barbara Downey, Mark Jones, Nancy Reed and Tom Vincent. Finally we wish to thank Gerard Stafleu and Amanda St. Jean for facilitating the production of this edition, and the secretarial staff in the Department of English at the University of Guelph and in the office of the Faculty of Arts and Science at Queen’s, for their assistance in preparing the manuscript.
