Opposite Contraries by Emily Carr
  

Synopsis

Opposite Contraries by Emily Carr

Previously unpublished writings from Emily Carr's journals, notebooks and correspondence that provide fresh insights into the life and character of a Canadian legend. EMILY CARR (1871-1945) was an extraordinary writer and artist. Although primarily a painter, she first gained recognition as an author for her seven popular, critically acclaimed books about her journeys to Native communities and her stories about life as an artist, as a small child in Victoria at the turn of the last century and as a landlady. Susan Crean's introductions to the book and to each of the three sections provide an illuminating context, both historical and cultural, for this previously unpublished material and assess its contribution to the story of Emily Carr.
