This claim has many types of evidence like the following: “How Smart are Dogs” by NOVA, “How Smart is a Dog Really” by Jeffrey Kluger, “Yes, Animals Think and Feel” by Simon Worrall, and “Nature Faker Controversy” by Ralph H. Lutts. This is important because with all this evidence, one can prove anyone wrong if they believe Jack London was a nature faker.

Thus, Archibald Lampman’s poems reflect the duality or ambivalence of the poet towards industrialization. This poem simultaneously reflects the general contention for modern industrialization that could be found in Canadian potry.
