The collected poetry, covering a 50-year span from 1970 to 2020, of one of Canada's most influential writers, literary critics and publishers. His work has been described as a "multidimensional oeuvre that includes autobiography, politics, the quotidian, myth, tragedy and humor." And D'Alfonso himself has been called "a philosopher who puts on the mask of the poet in order to better grasp the ambiguities of our world."
You, divinity that kills, / create mineral animal plant. / How many men begged / to sleep with you? / How many times your jealous father / drowned you? / You found a refuge / at the bottom of the sea, / where you wait for us to break / your laws and avenge you.
