Editorial Review

"The unhappy life and turbulent times of iconic Canadian poet Gwendolyn MacEwen and her obsessive need to create a national mythology. As ambitious as its subject, The Gwendolyn Poems vibrates with language that is at times beautiful, at times brutal - and always theatrical." —Governor General's Award Jury
