William Henry Drummond (April 13, 1854 April 6, 1907) was an Irish-born Canadian poet whose humorous dialect poems made him “one of the most popular authors in the English-speaking world,” and “one of the most widely-read and loved poets” in Canada. “His first book of poetry, ‘The Habitant’ (1897), was extremely successful, establishing for him a reputation as a writer of dialect verse that has faded since his death.” A collection of 20 poems written by Drummond, a Canadian doctor who wrote poetry in a French-Canadian dialect. Also included are two sketches, The Montmorenci Election and Philorum Abroad. These are prefaced with a biography written by the author’s wife and a memorial poem by S. Weir Mitchell.
