Review of Mary Dalton’s Edge in Atlantic Books Today

Reviews 0

Simon Vigneault, in Atlantic Books Today, commends Mary Dalton’s Edge for its “thorough exploration of Newfoundland’s spoken culture, its suppression and renewal by varied figures, including [Dalton] herself, while ruminating on the edge between margin and centre.”

Says Vigneault, “Part of what is satisfying about Edge: Essays, Reviews, Interviews, perhaps particularly for writers, and any lover of literature, is Mary Dalton’s reflection upon herself, on her own process, what a writer or poet is. In this reflection there is a continual return to a sense of occupying an edge, whereby at one point she says, “Ambivalence is the best I can do.”
