The Canadian writer first began writing for his college magazine and eventually advanced to writing for various popular magazines (i.e. Scribner’s). As his writing skills flourished, Lampman published his own first collection of poetry, Among the Mullet (1888), which led to the publishing of more collections and writing for The Globe in 1892. Even after his death in 1899, his memory and his poems bonding emotion with nature, still live on as a significant part of Canadian literary history.
