Today’s L.M. Montgomery book review: the Montreal News on The Watchman and Other Poems:

“Miss Montgomery has an extraordinary gift of imagery. Like so many of the big people of her craft she has a sensuous instinct for color, and she displays her skill in this direction in almost every line. The piece which gives the title to the volume is a powerful account of the Resurrection, told in verse that swings along like music; with a wealth of description that makes it like a poem painted in rich colors; and with a dignity and a restrained tenderness that scarcely fail in a single line.” —Montreal News
