Criticism about Margaret Avison

Margaret Avison: Power, Knowledge and the Language of Poetry
http://www.uwo.ca/english/canadianpoetry/cpjrn/vol04/kertzer.htm
"Margaret Avison's poetry is prompted and sustained by a sense of power to which the poems themselves give access. They dramatize her efforts to contact the sources of that power and to gain the knowledge it permits, a contact that is discouraged by the cynical frame of mind of modern man and so must be won through poetic effort, a knowledge that is inhibited by his misplaced faith in reason."
Contains: Criticism
Author: J. M. Kertzer
From: Canadian Poetry vol. 4
