The Correct Fury of Your Why Is a Mountain (Paperback)
Poet-critic Jim Johnstone has described Kevin Heslop's the correct fury of your why is a mountain as among the most promising poetic projects to come out of Canada in recent years. This debut collection communicates Heslop's sense of balance as a visual artist, curator, and poet who weights the page with visual harmony. By turns experiment, lyric, and incantation, the book nods to its author's training as an actor, combining a command of language, form, character, and polyphony to make something performatively unique.
