In French. “We can’t all be Émile Nelligan!” Who among us does not have, under a pile of dusty school notebooks, at least one lovelorn poem or a page from a teenage diary? Ten poets read from the things they were writing as callow youth. Nostalgic, intense, sincere, awkward, self-deprecating… We promise you, any notion you may have cherished that all great poets are born that way will be joyously dismantled. You’ll see that even published authors began with some pretty awful stuff scrawled in the margins of their Canada-brand scribblers. Accompaniment: Music for Money.
