Produktbeschreibung
Douglas & McIntyre is proud to announce definitive, completely redesigned editions of Emily Carrs seven enduring classic books. These are beautifully crafted keepsake editions of the literary world of Emily Carr, each with an introduction by a distinguished Canadian writer or authority on Emily Carr and her work.Emily Carrs first book, published in 1941, was titled Klee Wyck ("e;Laughing One"e;), in honour of the name that the Native people of the west coast gave to her. This collection of twenty-one word sketches about Native people describes her visits and travels as she painted their totem poles and villages. Vital and direct, aware and poignant, it is as well regarded today as when it was first published in 1941 to instant and wide acclaim, winning the Governor Generals Award for Non-fiction. In print ever since, it has been read and loved by several generations of Canadians, and has also been translated into French and Japanese.Kathryn Bridge, who, as an archivist, has long been well acquainted with the work of Emily Carr, has written an absorbing introduction that places Klee Wyck and Emily Carr in historical and literary context and provides interesting new information.

Autorenporträt
"Young, spirited and rebellious, Emily Carr escaped a strict Victorian household to study art in the Paris of Picasso and Matisse. In middle age, she shook the dust of acceptable society from her shoes and began a passionate journey into the wilderness of British Columbia; the power of her genius made her one of the twentieth century's great painters. Fortunately, she also wrote. In her books, her warmth, her humanity, her sense of fun and the ridiculous combine to present a self-portrait of a remarkable woman and artist."-Mary Pratt Kathryn Bridge is an archivist and manager of the British Columbia Archives. In 2001 she was curatorial chair for the exhibit Emily Carr: Eccentric, Artist, Author, Genius. She has written three books about women in Canadian history: Henry & Self: The Private Life of Sarah Lindley Crease, By Snowshoe, Buckboard and Steamer: Women of the Frontier (Winner of the 1998 Lieutenant-Governor's Medal for Historical Writing) and Phyllis Munday: Mountaineer.
