WADDINGTON, Miriam. The Price of Gold. Toronto: Oxford University Press, 1976. First Edition. Pp. (7),8-112. 8vo, illustrated gold card covers. MiriamWaddington (née Dworkin, December 23, 1917, Winnipeg, Manitoba - d. March 3, 2004, Vancouver, British Columbia) was a prolific Canadian poet and writer. "Miriam Waddington's career as a writer began in the 1940s. In the years since, she has produced a body of work that has made her one of the most widely read poets in Canada. Her ninth collection - the first since DrivingHome in 1972 - is about light and silence, about places, and, most importa ntly, about solitude without loneliness, space without emptiness, death without fear. Her verbal discipline, imagery, warmth, toughness, and humour; her multicultural sympathies; her optimism and honesty - all are qualities that make her poetry fresh and intimate." - rear cover. Very good. Due to its small size, shipping costs should be a bit cheaper than quoted. 14.00
