Biography of Dorothy Livesay

Dorothy Livesay was born in Winnipeg in October 1909. In 1920, she moved with her family to Toronto, where she went to school and later to the University of Toronto. Her first collection of poetry, Green Pitcher , was published in 1929 when she was only nineteen. It is a remarkable book the first fully modernist collection of poetry published in Canada, yet it was only the first of a series of remarkable accomplishments by one of the most accomplished and committed writers in our history. Dorothy Livesay has remained at the leading edge of intellectual discovery and literary innovation in Canada.

During the 1930's, after a brief stay in France, Livesay became a social worker and a member of the Young Communist Party. Her experience of working with the poor and her discovery of such left wing writers as C. Day Lewis, Stephen Spender, W.H. Auden and Lewis MacNeice led her to abandon the imagist poetry of her early work and to write such committed social poetry as "Day and Night," and "The Outrider." She also wrote agit-prop drama, contributed to and edited work for New Frontier and Masses magazines and took an active part in the work of the Progressive Arts Club. She married Duncan Macnair, moved to Vancouver and continued to write out of her social conscience.

During the 1940's and 50's Livesay devoted much of her time to raising her children, and her poetry lost some of its fervour, becoming more private and domestic. Nevertheless, she published the startlingly innovative poem for voices "Call My People Home," a long documentary poem about the removal of the Japanese from the West Coast.

After the death of her husband, Livesay spent some time in Zambia, then returned to Canada in the early 1960's to take part in a small Canadian literary renaissance. Her books The Unquiet Bed and Plainsongs looked at human relationships, love, and the problems of aging. In the late 1960's and 70's, Livesay's poetry became important to the women's movement, and Livesay herself became an important part of that movement. At the same time, she started the influential poetry journal CVII and returned to the social commitment of the 1930's, this time focussing on the peace and anti-nuclear movements in such works as The Raw Edges .

The Livesay papers are among the most important records in Canadian literature. They document a remarkable career, but they also tell the story of Canadian literature itself. Dorothy Livesay was always at the centre of Canadian literary life, and her papers are the record of a fine and sensitive artist in touch with her own art and her times.
