In this study of Dorothy Livesay’s love poetry, Nadine McInnis focuses on Livesay’s maturing sense of herself as an artist, exploring the sexual/textual conflicts present in much of Livesay’s poetry and the resolution of these conflicts in later poems.

In this study of Dorothy Livesay’s love poetry, Nadine McInnis focuses on Livesay’s maturing sense of herself as an artist, exploring the sexual/ ­textual conflicts present in much of Livesay’s love poetry and their later ­resolution.

"Tracing Livesay's treatment of love through sixty years of poetry is not merely an illumination of one woman's extraordinary 'psychic autobiography.'...Tracing such a vein illuminates with a kind of phosphorescent clarity how a woman's blood-line, a woman's deepest and most unconscious sense of reality, flows from her own private experiences out into the larger world governed by forces not natural, but man-made."
