Writers and critics have long acknowledged Bronwen Wallace’s unique contribution to Canadian literature and yet her work has received little academic recognition. This collection attempts to remedy this with voices old and new. A critical introduction, biography, and interview are followed by previously published essays by Susan Rudy, Brenda Vellino, and Aritha Van Herk and new contributions from Mary di Michele, Lorraine York, Susan Glickman, Wanda Campbell, and Andrea Beverley. Rounding out the collection are poems by Patrick Lane, Phil Hall, Phyllis Webb, and Wallace’s son Jeremy Baxter, along with a bibliography of primary and secondary sources.
