Miriam Waddington's verse is deceptively accessible: it is personal but never private, emotional but not confessional, thoughtful but never cerebral. The subtlety of her craft is the hallmark of a modernist poet whose work opens to the world and its readers. She details intoxicating romance and mature love, the pleasures of marriage and motherhood, the experience of raising two sons to adulthood, and the ineffable pain of divorce. As she moved through life, she wrote clearly and uncompromisingly about the vast sweep of Canada, her travels to new lands, the passage of time, the death of her ex-husband, the loss of close friends and, later, of growing old.

he preparation of a critical edition is always a large, collaborative under receTived in support of this editorial project. I have benefited greatly from the taking and this edition of Miriam Waddington’s verse is no exception. I welcome the opportunity to acknowledge the invaluable aid I have community of scholars associated with Editing Modernism in Canada (EMiC), a Strategic Research Network Project funded under the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada’s (SSHRC) Strategic Knowledge Cluster. Since April 2008 under the direction of Principal Investigator Dean Irvine, pro fessor of English at Dalhousie University,EMiC has brought together textual scholars from across Canada, as well as England, France, and the United States. EMiC’s mandate is directed primarily toward the production of critical editions of texts by modernist Canadian authors. My work on this edition of Miriam Waddington’s collected poetry has been carried out under the aegis ofEMiC, and I am grateful to Dean Irvine for inviting my communal participation in this nec essary and laudable project. Support for this edition has come fromEMiC, in the form of two research assis tant positions, as well as from my home institution, Ryerson University. Ryerson expedited my work on this edition with aSSHRCInstitutional Grant and by provid ing me with research assistants who, over a number of years, have interned as editorial assistants. I would like to express my sincere gratitude to these fund ing bodies for facilitating student training and the production of this edition of Miriam Waddington’s poetry. Marcus Waddington and Jonathan Waddington, Miriam Waddington’s literary executors, graciously granted me permission to consult the Miriam Waddington fonds, housed at Library and Archives Canada (LAC), while literary archivist Catherine J. Hobbs gave me access to the extensive Waddington materi als I consulted over the course of my research atLAC. I also relied heavily on the tireless efforts of Ryerson University Library’s interlibrary loan staff to procure copies of many of Waddington’s more elusive poems. For research assistance I owe special thanks to a team of energetic and dedi cated students who helped me at every stage of this project: Marlee Kostiner gath ered photocopies of the previously published poems that form the core of this
