Awhile back, I wrote a “how a poem works” essay about Julie Bruck’s poem “Sex Next Door” from her excellent book The End of Travel (Brick Books, 1999), and it’s now published as part of Brick Books Celebration of Canadian Poetry. You can go read it now!
I have all of Julie Bruck’s poetry collections; I’d already read Monkey Ranch twice before it was announced as the winner of the 2012 Governor General Award. Her poems are wonderful! I hope you enjoy the essay; please feel free to share the link and spread the news about the Celebration of Canadian Poetry project!
