Gyno Text (1983), a series of poems about pregnancy and birthing, celebrates the female body as a source of creative power and strength and reflects her interest in emerging subjectivity. Language issues are also raised in Frog Moon (1994), a novel that follows its writer-protagonist from her childhood in northern Ontario to her married life in Toronto. Subject to Criticism (1995), a collection of essays, reviews, letters and interviews, Cartouches (1995), a book of poetry that includes poems on the death of her father, and Kaki (1997) are her most recent works. Her translation of Anne HÉBERT's Le Jour n'a d'égal que la nuit appeared in 1997.
