Winlow Alice

Alice Winlow wrote plays as well as poetry. Her The Miracle of Roses contains the play of that name as well as a series of poems gathered into thematic collections, each introduced with a quotation from another poet’s work. “The Miracle of Roses” is introduced by an excerpt from Katherine Hale‘s “Morning in the West”; “Flowers” is introduced by an excerpt from Annie Charlotte Dalton‘s “The Ear-Trumpet”; “Music” is introduced by an excerpt from L.A. Lefevre’s “A Garden by the Sea”; “The Province of Mountain, Forest and Sea” is introduced by an excerpt from Marjorie Pickthall‘s “Little Songs”; “For Children” is introduced by an excerpt from Jean Blewett‘s “Heart Songs”; and the final section–“In Many Moods”–is introduced by an excerpt from Frances Beatrice Taylor’s “White Winds of Dawn.”

The copy held by SFU library has taped in the back a newspaper clipping, “Mrs. A. M. Winlow Speaks to Seattle Club on Wednesday,” with the only image of the author that we could find (posted above).
