Sensual and compelling, the simple words of Nicole Brossard's writings slip in unexpected ways into readers' minds, all the better to transform their sense of self and reality. Creating tropes out of women's unspoken experiences, advanced science, literary and philosophical traditions, and the devastation of politics everywhere, she has been revolutionising concepts of human knowledge and being, challenging the assumed entitlement of those who abuse power for more than three decades. This collection offers unpublished poems by Brossard, extensive fragments of a conversation with her, and essays that critically appreciate many of her more than twenty collections of poetry, nine novels, and countless works of theory and commentary. Essays by Louise H. Forsyth, Karen S. McPherson, Alice A. Parker, Louise Dupré, Claudine Potvin, Katharine Conley, Catherine Campbell, Susan Knutson, Susan Holbrook, Barbara Godard, and Lynette Hunter.
