The Goddess in the Garden previous next   Ekstasis Editions

We’re back in the garden but something’s changed...
This is the garden of the Great Mother Goddess, where the drama of relationships between women (in the roles of daughter, mother and sister), and between women and men (as friends and lovers), casts a surprising light on the concept of Paradise. A compelling new volume from one of Canada’s most esteemed voices in poetry, The Goddess in the Garden is an important work combining mystical insight and sensual language to evoke a timeless meadow where humans and deities play out eternal passions.
