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.

I’mpossible collab asserts the collaborative nature of literary criticism, how as critics we “write, write with, write alongside, or rewrite” literary texts. In ten essays discussing works by contemporary Canadian poets such as Jordan Abel, Oana Avasilichioaei, Dionne Brand, Anne Carson, Kaie Kellough, Annick MacAskill, Erín Moure, M. NourbeSe Philip, and Lisa Robertson, scholar and poet Klara du Plessis explores the critic’s interpretive agency and the valuable playfulness of pursuing our own insights, proposing a more fluid, organic, and open-ended approach to how we think and write about poetry.
