Sir Charles George Douglas Roberts (1860-1943) was a Canadian poet and prose writer. Born in New Brunswick, Roberts was one of the first Canadian authors to be internationally known. He published various works on Canadian exploration and natural history, verse, travel books, and fiction. Roberts continued to be a well-known "man of letters" until his death. Besides his own body of work, Roberts has also been called the "Father of Canadian Poetry" for his inspiration and assistance to other Canadian poets of his time.
