Special issue on Canadian Jewish Women Writers
Guest Editor: Ruth Panofsky
This special issue of Canadian Jewish Studies/Études juives canadiennes, a peer-reviewed journal published by the Association for Canadian Jewish Studies/l’Association d’études juives canadiennes, is devoted to the subject of Canadian Jewish women writers. The issue is dedicated to the poet Miriam Waddington (1917-2004) and features three of her poems, “Songs of Old Age,” “Noises,” and “Spring Onions.” It includes scholarly essays by Marita Grimwood on the novel Fugitive Pieces by Anne Michaels; Donna Krolik Hollenberg on the poetry of Rhea Tregebov; Faith Jones on the poetry of Esther Shumiatcher-Hirschbein; Laura McLauchlan on the early life writing and poetry of Miriam Waddington; and Goldie Morgentaler on the Yiddish writer Chava Rosenfarb.
This special issue brings together for the first time a series of essays that examine the writing of Canadian Jewish women.
