From Our Editors

The poems in Jan Horner's collection Elizabeth Went West speak to the lives of women. The title selection is an imagined correspondence among three women: Elizabeth Russell, an 18th-century diarist and landholder in what is now Toronto; 19th-century Canadian writer Susanna Moodie; and a poet from the present day. Other poems allude to points around the world, but their viewpoint is rooted in the Canadian prairies and city life. Speaking through these voices, Horner touches upon universal human issues such as sex, marriage and parenthood.
