Gwendolyn MacEwen was to many a mesmerising presence. In less than twenty-six years, she published twenty books and became, with Margaret Atwood, the most celebrated Canadian poet of her day. Then, in 1987, at forty-six, she was dead; many suspected suicide.
Alien Creature: A Visitation from Gwendolyn MacEwen is inspired by MacEwen's life and work, yet is an entirely new creation. MacEwen, as evoked by Griffiths, returns to a modern world one night, bringing images and a prophetic warning. There has been a death of poetry, of imagination. The city will pay. The world will pay. Then she laughs, opens her hands, pulling brilliant scarves from the air. On this night, MacEwen is torn apart by her magic, made invincible by her magic.
