Shakti's Words

An Anthology of South Asian Canadian Women's Poetry


edited by Diane McGifford and Judith Kearns

Articulating a purely feminist consciousness; giving voice to Third World and immigrant concerns; decrying racism and bigotry; rebellious and subversive, sometimes simply lyrical or imagistic; invoking the real, magical, and mythical, old worlds and the new; analytical or synthetical; these poems reflect also a commitment to craft, the search for form, and individual style. They represent the new voices that are gradually changing the landscape of Canadian literature.

"Shakti's Words is a diverse collection, as personal as it is politicized."
—Books in Canada  

"This collection deserves a place in Canadian poetry courses across the country."  
—Canadian Literature
