POEMS BY FRANCESCA LISETTE * ARIANA REINES * LISA ROBERTSON

CRITICISM BY FRANCESCA LISETTE


Francesca Lisette holds an MA in Critical Theory from the University of Sussex, where she organised the reading series Chlorine in Brighton, 2009 - 2010. A collection of her poetry written between 2007 and 2010 has just been released from Mountain Press; extracts of her work can be found in Better than Language: An Anthology of New Modernist Poetries (Ganzfeld, 2011). She is currently working on a project combining poetry and performance elements entitled sub rosa; or, “The Book of Metaphysics”, and is the editor of the forthcoming poetry and review magazine, EROSION.


Born in Salem, Massachusetts, poet, playwright, and translator Ariana Reines earned a BA from Barnard College, and completed graduate work at both Columbia University and the European Graduate School, where she studied literature, performance, and philosophy. Her books of poetry include The Cow (2006), which won the Alberta Prize from Fence Books; Coeur de Lion (2007); and Mercury (2011). Her poems have been anthologized in Against Expression (2011) and Gurlesque (2010). Known for her interest in bodily experience, the occult, new media, and the possibilities of the long or book-length form, Reines has been described as “one of the crucial voices of her generation” by Michael Silverblatt on NPR’s Bookworm. At once personal, Romantic, slippery, and extreme, Reines’s poetry investigates and overturns lyric conventions. Of her own work, she admitted in an interview with HTML Giant: “My best writing seems to have to be forced from me by some other force but that force has to be one whose power I agree to serve.”


Lisa Robertson is in the middle of her life, in the middle of France, in the midst of fields. She has a new book of essays called Nilling, from Bookthug in Toronto, the city where she was born. Recent books of poetry include The Men, R's Boat and Lisa Robertson's Magenta Soul Whip. She is entirely freelance. http://bookthug.ca/proddetail.php?prod=201122 http://www.chbooks.com/biographies/lisa-robertson-0
