Pasian, Alexandra (2006) Every day. Masters thesis, Concordia University.
- Accepted Version
Every Day is a collection of lyric poems that grapples with the quotidian nature of language, motherhood, life. For the speaker in this collection, the quotidian does not mean mundane or ordinary. For this speaker, it is the daily struggle that is her greatest work. Every day she tries to make language her own. Every day she balances and weighs the images she creates, asking herself "Is this the stuff of poetry?" Every day she endeavours to engage with a literary tradition that includes the poetry of Paul Celan, Anne Sexton, William Carlos Williams, without becoming overwhelmed by the weight of their work. Every day she tries to embrace her world.
