New. 'Genevieve Taggard is recognized as one of the finest American poets of the 20 th century. Her work appears in every major anthology of American poetry. Yet this is the first comprehensive collection of her work ever to appear. To Test the Joy collects the best of Genevieve Taggard’s poetry, fiction, memoirs, and criticism, providing a superb overview of her remarkable life and career. Taggard constantly challenged herself as a woman, as a citizen, and as an artist. She strove constantly to find deeper meanings in herself, in her times, and in the world around her. The result is a poetry of exceptional power and precision: “a product of fine discipline, a complete and unusual blending,” as one reviewer put it. Genevieve Taggard’s life and work embraced issues and experiences at the core of 20th Century history: the oppression of colonialism; the fight for the rights of women; the struggle of labour against capitalism; the destruction of nature by industrialization. Issues and experiences that are still relevant today.' ~ Publisher.
