Place Where Your Soul Dwells by Carole David

Book Description

Poets speak the unspeakable. Carole David's poems exude the smell of life in the raw. She excavates the human landscape. She goes for the jugular. Softly. David's literary heroes include Sylvia Plath, Ann Sexton, the Beat generation. Her early prose-poems are stark and questioning. They placed her outside the Quebec literary establishment. This translation finally makes her art accessible to a wider Anglo readership. The Place Where Your Soul Dwells, culled from her six books of poetry published between 1986 and 2005, cover a wide emotional territory. In stark, compressed language, the poet speaks of loss, memory, love, sex, suicide. Her characters struggle. They walk the edge. But through the pain, the words illuminate. Like crystal, they resonate.
