About this product
- DescriptionFinally a collected Musgrave for those old eugh to have been there in the 1970s and those young eugh to want to reexperience the generation's wry optimism and ironic fervour. This seven-title can reissues Musgrave's early must-have literary opus and includes: Songs of the Sea-Witch, Entrance of the Celebrant, Grave-Dirt and Selected Strawberries, The Impstone, Becky Swan's Book, A Man to Marry, a Man to Bury, and Cocktails at the Mausoleum. Originally published by So Nis, Macmillan, McClelland & Stewart and Porcupine's Quill, the poems in What the Small Day Cant Hold reconstitute the lost can of one of the country's most vibrant and orgiinal national voices. Called the foremost poet of her generation , Musgrave epitomizes the people's poet, bringing to audiences starved for a new language of wide breadth of material startling in its intensity and originality, legendary in its myth-making and monumental in its primal power. From witchcraft to wilderness, from First Nations to the urban nation, from the erotic to the exotic, these poems explode typical expectations and haunt the reader with unprecedented dramatic appeal.
