Molly Peacock

Molly Peacock, one of Canada's most beloved poets, tells the story of the decades-long relationship she's had with her psychoanalyst, who returned to painting after surviving a stroke. By translating techniques of visual art into language, The Analyst guides us through galleries of breathtaking settings and portraiture, leading us on a search for authenticity behind the illusions of pose.
