Invocations offers a new critical reading of GwendolynMacEwen's poetry and prose. It begins with a review of criticalassessments of her work which reveals that, while fascinated withMacEwen's mythic sensibility, critics are concerned with theelusive, complex nature of her language and vision as rooted in sourcesoften obscure to the reader. In this book, poet-critic Jan Bartleyplaces MacEwen within the tradition of Canadian literature and examinesher major sources -- notably the study of alchemy and Jungianphilosophy -- to reveal the inner logic of her poetic explorations.
