Abstract:

Collected in this volume are Chelsey Minnis's first two books: Zirconia (winner of the Alberta Prize) and Bad Bad. Zirconia introduced a speaker described as half-smirking, half-weeping" by the Village Voice. Minnis heralded the gurlesque, a term coined for the occasion and defined as "a feminine, feminist incorporating of the grotesque and cruel with the spangled and dreamy." Bad Bad ushers Zirconia's juvenile persona into unblushing womanhood. The poems are equally clownish and fuck-offish, taking on with equivocal weightlessness the lexicons and trimmings of fashion, as it applies to the Self and the garments that clothe the Self, and self-obliteration. Minnis addresses the inner needs of the poet - "the purpose of poetry is to seem as lifelike as possible so that you actually exist.""
