Abstract:

"Bloody Jack is a collection about the making and unmaking of story, of poetry and of history." "Based loosely on the life of John Krafchenko, a notorious Manitoban outlaw, the poems of Bloody Jack turn fact and fiction upside down and inside out. Travel with Jack and his beloved Penny, experience both writing and being written, reading and being read. You begin to remember what you have not yet known and did not yet realize you were missing." "Dennis Cooley has added more than a dozen new poems to this revised edition, extending his playful relationship with the already elusive text. Poet and scholar Douglas Barbour's contextual introduction helps the reader understand both the original volume and the wonder of its new existence."--Jacket.
