Hector de Saint-Denys-Garneau13 June 1912 - 24 October 1943
I’m reading Garneau’s Journal now. This is, as you say, a unique thing in this country. He seems to have been like one of those mediaeval prodigies who developed almost overnight: poetry, metaphysics, art, nature, music, politics – he is brilliantly at home in all of them: only his sense of guilt and forlornness, his despair, are all too modern, and give him an astonishing depth.
— John Glassco, letter to F.R. Scott, 28 November 1957
