Before her death in 1985 at the age of fifty-one, Marian Engel had published seven novels, two collections of short stories, and numerous essays and articles. Despite this impressive output and various literary honours, including a Governor General's Award for her novel Bear, Engel's writing has not received the critical attention it deserves. A comprehensive study of Engel's body of work, Lifelines fills a major gap in Canadian literary criticism.
