Klara du Plessis

Klara du Plessis’s debut poetry collection, Ekke, won the 2019 Pat Lowther Memorial Award. Her book-length narrative poem, Hell Light Flesh, was adapted and produced as a mono-opera film with composer Jimmie LeBlanc. She also develops an ongoing series of experimental and dialogic literary events called Deep Curation, an approach which posits the poetry reading as artform. She holds a PhD in English Literature and lives in Montreal.

The Devil’s Whim Occasional Chapbook Series: No. 41

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.
