Women and Words : The Anthology

Women and Words: The Anthology

By The Women and Words Committee
$16.95



With 81 contributors, Women & Words was the most ambitious collection of writing published during the rise of Canada women's writing in the 1980s, and the first one to be published in both French and English. It includes short fiction, poetry and dramatic pieces by well-known writers like Marian Engel, Nicole Brossard, Jane Rule, Louky Bersaniuk and Phyllis Webb, as well as work from writers appearing in print for the first time who later rose to prominence.

The Women & Words Anthology is an important book reflecting the diverse cultural, linguistic, educational, geographical and racial backgrounds of the women writing in Canada, and is a testimony to the variety of artistic strategies which make up our Canadian landscapes.
