  • Anne Hébertby André Brochu

    Les Presses de l'Université d'Ottawa 2000; US$ 9.99

    Très rapidement, Anne Hébert trouve sa voie, singulière entre toutes celles de notre littérature : le matérialisme. Entendons par là que, récusant l?enseignement religieux, c?est dans les profondeurs du moi que l?auteure cherche la vérité de l?être ; et la plongée en soi révèle essentiellement, comme le disait Freud, le jeu des pulsions. Pulsions... more...

  • Clockfireby Jonathan Ball

    Coach House Books 2006; US$ 13.95

    Talented newcomer Jonathan Ball?s Clockfire is a suite of poetic blueprints for imaginary plays that would be impossible to produce – plays in which, for example, the director burns out the sun, actors murder their audience, and the laws of physics are flagrantly violated. The poems in one sense replace the need for drama, and are predicated on... more...

  • The Porcupinity of the Starsby Gary Barwin

    Coach House Books 2006; US$ 13.95

    In this much-anticipated new collection, poet and musician Gary Barwin both continues and extends the alchemical collision of language, imaginative flight and quiet beauty that have made him unique among contemporary poets. As the Utne Reader has noted, what makes this work 'so compelling is Barwin?s balance of melancholy with wide-eyed wonder.'... more...

  • The Refrigerator Memoryby Shannon Bramer

    Coach House Books 2001; US$ 13.95

    The Refrigerator Memory is an exuberant, strangely funny celebration of sadness. With fable-like miniature stories and short lyric poems, Shannon Bramer creates a world littered with stolen pears and prosthetic arms and inhabited by Kindness scientists and hot-air-balloon operators. The poems invoke a world of childhood delights and demons in... more...

  • Crabwise to the Houndsby Jeramy Dodds

    Coach House Books 2004; US$ 13.95

    With cameos by jackalopes, Glenn Gould, homemade spaceships, and Carl Linnaeus, these poems are remarkable for their technical agility and their restless inventiveness. There?s an elegance here that matches Dodds? impulse to challenge the reader with fresh metaphor and astonishing phrasing; the formal ambitions of many of the poems in Crabwise to... more...

  • The Certainty Dreamby Kate Hall

    Coach House Books 2005; US$ 13.95

    Descartes asked, How can I know that I am not now dreaming? The Certainty Dream poses similar questions through poetry, but without the trappings of traditional philosophy. Kate Hall?s bracingly immediate, insistently idiosyncratic debut collection lays bare the tricks and tools of her trade: a mynah bird perches in poems but 'stands for nightingale';... more...

  • Ad Sanctosby bp Nichol

    Coach House Books 1994; US$ 13.95

    'All of Nichol?s work is stamped by his desire to create texts that are engaging in themselves as well as in context, and to use indirect structural and textual devices to carry meaning. In The Martyrology different ways of speaking testify to a journey through different ways of being. Language is both the poet?s instructor and, through its various... more...
