Full Circle brings together poetry written across decades by one of Newfoundland’s best-loved writers. Balanced on the sharpest edge of life, yet caught in the ruthless pull of aging and death, these poems offer keen insights into the way the world was—and the way it ought to be. Throughout, Porter reminds us that change, like life, is a long and circuitous journey, and that the fight for a good life and a just society is never over.
Helen Fogwill Porter has published articles, stories, plays, and poems for six decades. Born and raised in St. John’s, as a writer, teacher, political activist, and feminist, she has received numerous awards, including an honorary doctorate and the Order of Canada. She now lives in Paradise, Newfoundland.
