This is a selection of poetry sequences by well-known poet and critic Douglas Barbour. Many of the sequences in Fragmenting Body etc were written in response to particular events or texts, but are not intended to be reports or descriptions of them. Included are an elegiac sequence for bpNichol, a poetic response to the art of Liz Ingram, a poem written daily during the Gulf War, and the long title poem exploring aspects of what we mean by the body in the world. Each sequence in Fragmenting Body etc explores the possibilities of language as it attempts to do something different in an innovative manner.
‘Barbour composes with the trained ear of a musician who’s got something to say before the lights go out forever.’ —Roy Miki
