Description

Winner of the 2014 A.M. Klein Prize for Poetry

MxT, or ‘Memory x Time,’ is one of the formulas acclaimed poet Sina Queyras posits as a way to measure grief. These poems mourn the dead by turning memories over and over like an old coin, by invoking other poets, by appropriating the language of technology, of instruction, of diagram, of electrical engineering, and of elegy itself. Devastating, cheeky, allusive, hallucinatory: this is Queyras at her most powerful.

'Like the central conceptual apparatus, Queyras is smart and insightful in her work to expand and challenge the nature of language and poetry … Lend Queyras your ears, your minds, your hearts, your Time. She will reward you, repeatedly.'

The Rumpus

'A collection of gorgeous and cantankerous poems that ask testy questions of all contemporary poets,and for this, the book is a must-read.'

The Globe and Mail

'This year's most devastating and enlightening Canadian poetry collection.'

Telegraph-Journal
