Mary di Michele is an extraordinary voice in Canadian poetry. From the award-wining Mimosa and Other Poems, to her recent novel, Tenor of Love, di Michele explores the human experience with frankness and sensitivity. She has also chronicled the experiences of ethnic minority women with sharp images and memorable poetic lines. She is considered one of the founders of Italian-Canadian literature. The essays in this volume examine the full range of her works, especially Luminous Emergencies and Debriefing the Rose. The essays are by Nathalie Cooke, Lisa Bonato, Barbara Godard, Vera Golini, Jon Paul Fiorentino, Ian Williams, Richard Harrison, Debra Muchnik, and Joseph Pivato. The bibliography and interview are by the editor.
