Miriam Waddington was the first Jewish Canadian woman to publish poetry written in English. Part of a Montreal literary circle, she participated in the development modernist Canadian poetry.
"Waddington wrote layered verse always from a gendered position, first as a social worker who saw aspects of herself in her most vulnerable clients. She detailed intoxicating romance and mature love, the pleasures of marriage and motherhood, the experience of raising two sons to adulthood and the ineffable pain of divorce." - The Conversation
