Seeing in the Dark: The Poetry of Phyllis Webb
Pauline Butling

March 1997
Paperback

Douglas Barbour
"[This] ... is one of the most important studies of contemporary Canadian poetry to appear in recent years. Phyllis Webb has long deserved such a careful, innovative, and challenging critique.... This is a necessary book."

Linda Lamont-Stewart, University of Toronto Quarterly
"Butling's careful readings of Webb's poems are nuanced and perceptive, and her argument that Webb's poetics enact a feminist politics of social change is persuasive. Her study represents a substantial contribution to the critical literature on the work of this fascinating and often quite difficult poet.
