Selected Longer Poems
The collected longer poems of brilliant Canadian poet Sharon Thesen
Refabulations collects and reanimates the longer and serial poems from Sharon Thesen’s œuvre, from her first book in 1980 to today. It is a record of a life in language, created by a dexterous and renegade poet whose mind is ever at work in the poem. A self-described “receiver,” Thesen energizes her decades of vital work by providing new neighbours and contexts for a body of poetry that has always recognized disaster, laughed at folly, and made its home in the vigour of the Now. Refabulations includes a short introductory essay by the editor, Erín Moure, an afterword-interview with the poet, and a bibliography.
