Announcing The Untranslatable I by Roxanna Bennett
Gordon Hill Press is pleased to announce The Untranslatable I, a collection of poetry by Roxanna Bennett.
In unmeaningable, her previous book with Gordon Hill Press, Roxanna renovated the North American disability poetics canon via her queer fusion of invisible and visible disability identities. The Untranslatable I builds on Roxanna's acute sense of form and cripping of myth by establishing a more reflective, heartbreaking voice that asks, "Was I chosen? Is this a gift or a curse?" and provides answers not as prescribed path or cure, but as beautiful song.
Roxanna is a poet living with disability in Whitby, Ontario. She is the author of unseen garden (chapbook, knife | fork | book, 2018), The Uncertainty Principle (Tightrope Books, 2014), and unmeaningable (Gordon Hill press, 2019). Her poetry has appeared in many magazines, journals, and anthologies, most recently CV2, Grain, Riddle Fence, PRISM International, Plenitude Magazine, and Tim Tim Literary Review.
