Six Montreal Poets is a collection of mid-20th-century poetry featuring six members of the Montreal Group, modernist writers formed at McGill University in the 1920s. This 1957 album offers listeners a slice of the romance and bustle of mid-century Montreal. Rejecting the Victorianism that had previously characterized English Canadian poetry, the Montreal Group took on more cosmopolitan, personal, and philosophical subjects. It was a movement that eventually produced Leonard Cohen, heard here reciting his own poetry from his first published book, Let Us Compare Mythologies , seven years before his first major literary prize and ten years before his first song album would be released.
