Miriam Waddington's verse is deceptively accessible: it is personal but never private, emotional but not confessional, thoughtful but never cerebral. The subtlety of her craft is the hallmark of a modernist poet whose work opens to the world and its readers. She details intoxicating romance and mature love, the pleasures of marriage and motherhood, the experience of raising two sons to adulthood, and the ineffable pain of divorce. As she moved through life, she wrote clearly and uncompromisingly about the vast sweep of Canada, her travels to new lands, the passage of time, the death of her ex-husband, the loss of close friends and, later, of growing old.Subject(s): Canada | LITERARY COLLECTIONS / Women Authors | Modern & contemporary poetry (c 1900 onwards) | POETRY / Canadian | POETRY / Women Authors | Poetry by individual poetsOriginal Publisher: Ottawa, University of Ottawa PressLanguage(s): English
