Drawing Down a Daughter by Clare Harris

first published 1992, paperback

 

Harris' work cuts across the boundaries between poetry and prose to tell a tale of sexual politics, pregnancy, and motherhood. Preparing to give birth, Harris's dream mother speaks to her unborn daughter through journals, letters, stories, and eloquent imaginings, all the while calling up a cast of characters from Canada and the Caribbean.
