  1. To me, Gwendolyn MacEwan is to Canada is as Seamus Heaney is to Ireland, rooting around in the country's soil to find its darkness, its beauty, its myths, and shaping this into something that speaks of the contemporary land. MacEwan's poems are haunted by the power of nature and the smallness of humankind. There's something fundamentally Canadian in the strange spirituality of her poems. I love it.She won the Governor General's Literary Award twice. Why are all her books out of print?

  2. One of my favorite poems, Dark Pines Underwater is in this collection. MacEwan has that hint of mythology in her poetry - that exploration of the lines between inner and outer being.
