LIVESAY, Dorothy

Regular price $500.00 Sale

Canadian poet Dorothy Livesay twice won the Governor General's Award in the 1940s, and was "senior woman writer in Canada" during the 1970s and 1980s. This first collection of her poetry was published in 1928 when she was only 19 years old. According to The Encyclopedia of Literature, "these were well-crafted poems that not only showed skilled use of the imagist technique but prefigured Margaret Atwood's condemnations of exploitative and fearful attitudes to the Canadian landscape."
