D.G. Jones’ Collected Poems

After immigrating from Vermont to Quebec, I undertook the project (one that I now realize will be life-long) of reading Quebec and Montreal writers in an effort to pierce the border between US and Canadian lit, and become more locally literate.

D.G. Jones is among those writers who have given me a sense of place and purpose as I’ve begun to write in a new country. He is one of many Quebec writers who have sought (in his words) “a more intimate commerce” between Canada’s two official languages and has refused “to accept the terms of the confrontation” between them. His collected poems, The Stream Exposed with All Its Stones, is out now, and my review is up on Rover today.
