Description

From Montreal's metro stations and streets to pastoral mise-en-scènes, William Vallieres' first book, Versus, is a lyric bildungsroman filled with portraits of seduction and infatuation, loneliness and buried shame--"What yesterday had fought to bud / Is stunted under ice today." These are darkly canny poems about childhood, familial histories, lost love and the weariness of spending one's "being being / Everything I'm against." Deftly crafted, intense and compact, with barbed insights arrived at through verbal twists and syntactic half-turns, Valliere's voice is entirely his own.
