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."
