November 13, 1947, Toronto, Ontario). At the time of publication the author lived in Corner Brook, Newfoundland, and taught English at Sir Wilfred Grenfell College. "In exploring themes of home and exile, family life and travel, Steffler focuses on the ongoing processes that envelop us and shape our lives. The consequences that flow from loving people and places are cnetral. Balanced on the precarious edge between internal and external worlds, the poems range from freewheeling and playful celebrations to precise evocations of a moment caught in time." - from the rear cover.
