"Few poets are better equipped than Queyras to plunge into the examination of the figure of Plath as a prototype for female genius. With honesty, humour and passionate attention, she lays bare the gendered conventions that circumscribed Plath's life and how they are still, in new guises, determining her own life as well as that of her female students... Queyras's masterful collection does not stay in the shadow of Plath's work. Its mix of scholarship, dramatic monologue, persona-adopting and elegy could give rise to a multipronged new genre: the auto-poetic-bio-epic." - The Globe and Mail "The collection is so rich and so heroic, I cannot do it justice in so short a word count. Readers will need to spend a lot of time with it. Rest assured that the time will be very well spent." - Montreal Review of Books
