Description

Nought, a new collection of lyric poetry from Governor General's Literary Award finalist Julie Joosten, explores the intersections of body, identity, and love. These poems, in all their passions, inhabit the unfastened "and" of capacious loves and allegiances, refusing to choose between them; in Nought, thought comes alive through the materiality of body and experience, neurology and metaphysics entangled with sentient physicality—skin, eyes, mouths. Throughout, Joosten grapples with form and rhythm, crafting work that is intimately perceptive; that pulses and teems with life.

In Nought, experience—from resistance to love and all points between—is constantly surprising and utterly enchanting. It will alter your perception and construction of, and attention to, yourself and the surrounding world.

Praise for Nought:

"This tenderly porous poetry is a philosophical excursion into ancient and still-vast questions: how are dogs, grasses, crickets, anemones always becoming thought? Joosten composes a phenomenology of care, brings me to the sill of an attentive stillness where I am free to not be myself. It's a little frightening and a little exhilarating. But in these poems I am welcomed and supported by the shared minutiae of perceiving." —Lisa Robertson, author of The Baudelaire Fractal
