Fine arts biography
Synthetic audio, Automated braille
Collected from Emily Carr's private and public writings, these previously unpublished pieces reveal the outspoken artist at her most forthright. Expurgated sections from Carr's journals detail her anguished meditations on her spiritual mission, musings about Native culture and the white… community's reaction to it, and thoughts about her family. Her groundbreaking 1913 "Lecture on Totems", her first recorded writing on Native art and people, is also included, as are some of her most fascinating letters to friends and colleagues.
