Unfurl by Klara du Plessis collects four precise and thoughtful essays on contemporary Canadian poets Erín Moure, Dionne Brand, Lisa Robertson, and Anne Carson. Du Plessis renders the philosophical preoccupations and stylistic clues of these deeply influential writers, from critical distancing through language and word play, the function of documenting and aestheticizing, feminine volatility as a form of omnipresence, to a reimagining of the book. Unfurl is an interpretative critical project and illustrates the vitality of poetics, finding writers and texts in ongoing dialogue.
