Overview

Anne Szumigalski, renowned for her breakout poetry collection Woman Reading in Bath, her Governor General’s Award winning collection Voice, and many other books in between, was one of Canada’s most prominent poets. With her published works, as well as with her teaching and magnanimous guidance, she did as much as or more than anyone to put prairie Canadian poetry on the map. But Anne was more than a poet. She also wrote fiction, drama, literary non-fiction, and even a Prairie liturgy. Here, collected for the first time, is a sampling of the best of all the many literary faces of Anne Szumigalski, chosen and edited by her literary executor, Mark Abley, who also provides an extensive introduction for the work.
