Opposite Contraries

Unknown Journals of Emily Carr and Other Writings

Edited by: Susan Crean
By: Emily Carr

Previously unpublished writings from a Canadian legend.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. Collected for the first time, Emily Carr’s journals, notebooks and correspondence provide fresh insights into the life and character of the legendary artist.

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and to each of the three sections provide an illuminating context, both historical and cultural, for this previously unpublished material and assess its contribution to the story of Emily Carr.
