Poets' Corner

Poets' Corner, located just below the Harriet Irving Library, in Jacob's Yard, honours 3 poets from the earlier days of UNB, Bliss Carman, Charles GD Roberts and Francis Sherman. The renovation of the monument and the development of a seating area invite you to sit and read or chat, attend a performance or reading, or hold a class on a nice day.

More than a collection of buildings, UNB is an environment for growth and innovation, providing space for the intellectual , social, creative and spiritual needs of its community.  Not just part of the physical landscape, Poets' Corner  along with the sculptures  by New Brunswick artists like Peter Powning (La Vita della Conversazione) and Jacques Martin (La Reponse du Cheval) become part of an intellectual and aesthetic space.
