Sonnet L’Abbé grapples with history and with literary inheritance, as she works with and against what is one of the most overdetermined traditional literary forms.
SONNET L’ABBÉ, PhD, is the author of A Strange Relief and Killarnoe, and was the 2014 guest editor of Best Canadian Poetry in English. Her chapbook, Anima Canadensis, was published by Junction Books in 2016 and won the 2017 bpNichol Chapbook Award. In her next collection, Sonnet’s Shakespeare, L’Abbé writes over all 154 of Shakespeare’s sonnets. L’Abbé is a professor of Creative Writing and English at Vancouver Island University.
