Description:

The paper looks specifically at what the poem tells us about the preoccupations and concerns of nineteenth century Upper Canadians vis-a-vis the natural world; more than that, the paper conveys the changing attitudes of the general public towards the falls as the tough climate of Upper Canada gradually fell under the (relative) control of humanity. The paper points out that any poetry that discusses the Canadian landscape also discusses, even if not directly, the uneasy relationship of Canadians to that landscape.
