Translating the Unspeakable Poetry and the Innovative Necessity by Kathleen Fraser

Translating the Unspeakable Poetry and the Innovative Necessity Press Reviews

These superb essays by Kathleen Fraser take their sanction from her long commitment to the craft of poetry and to the advocacy of experimental writing by women. She speaks with a poet's authority, but with a large and articulate awareness of the theoretical and practical concerns of contemporary poets. Current discussions of contemporary poetry are enormously enriched by these complex reflections, revealing Fraser's intelligent passion for this lifelong vocation, not only as writer but as teacher and editor, and her generosity and openness to the labors of poets marginalized and occluded within the record. —Eileen Gregory, University of Dallas
