Lynn Coady: Four Questions

Lynn Coady: Four Questions

Frankie Barnet: Place plays a significant role in your work. Stories like “Wireless”, “Hellgoing” and “Another World” all seem to have an interest in exploring and critiquing cosmopolitan aspects of city life, as well as differences between city and country life. You yourself are from Cape Breton but now live in Edmonton. How important is...
Claudia Rankine: from Citizen

Claudia Rankine: from Citizen

From the cover to the sequencing, from the command of the line to the glide from essay to poem to prose to meditation, Claudia Rankine’s Citizen: An American Lyric is a must read. There’s persona, then there is the poem as both an intellectual scaffold and an actual body. The disorienting inhabiting of another’s body,...

Josef Kaplan: Two Introductions

But the incessance of the emotional environment—the appeals to a “felt” response that exists only in its inconceivability, and its consequent legitimacy as a response recognized only insofar as it remains inconceivable—surely this can be described...
Elvia Wilk in Conversation with J. R. Carpenter

Elvia Wilk in Conversation with J. R. Carpenter

Electronic Literature is a loaded and slippery category. It is rather dryly defined by the Electronic Literature Organization (what other art form needs a governing body?) as “works with important literary aspects that take advantage of the capabilities and contexts provided by the stand-alone or networked computer.” Does this mean everything or nothing? If there’s...

By Max Bledstein The history of racial relations in North America has certainly been a topic of interest amongst filmmakers and playwrights in recent years, and one in which audiences have been happy to engage them.

Emily Keeler: Anne Carson at IFOA

Anne Carson Wednesday, October 30, 2013 The line is so long and the lobby is so small and we’re all here to see a poet who is improbably famous but very deservedly beloved. As soon as I take my seat in the dark theatre, I notice a who’s who trickling in, authors and publishers and...
