Having practiced as a psychiatrist for many years, as well as having personally experienced years of intensive personal psychoanalysis, has given the poet, Farideh de Bosset, the opportunity to look at, and experience, life with an acute intensity of joy and pain. Each poem records the events of a woman's everyday life, as well as the poet's experiences of talking to, and healing with, patients, and friends and family, as well as the impact of literature and art, the countries she's lived in and visited, and, of cours,e her dreams and her understanding of those dreams on her work, her creation of art, and her life. Aware of the everyday juggling between different structures of the psyche and the external world in each and every one of us contributes to the poet's awe and admiration for the enduring nature of the human spirit.

Farideh de Bosset was born in Tehran, Iran, where poetry is part of everyday life and conversation. She lives and writes in Toronto. At the age of 18, she moved to Switzerland where she obtained her medical degree in psychiatry. She interned in Quebec and then moved to Toronto in 1972 for her residency. She received her fellowship in psychiatry in 1972, and was a staff psychiatrist and assistant professor in psychiatry at the University of Toronto until 1991, when she established her private practice. Her poetry has been published in a number of literary journals across Canada. She lives and writes in Toronto.
