Description-

  • In the follow-up to his Griffin Poetry Prize–winning collection, This Wound is a World, Billy-Ray Belcourt writes using the modes of accusation and interrogation. He aims an anthropological eye at the realities of everyday life to show how they house the violence that continues to reverberate from the long twentieth century. In a genre-bending constellation of poetry, photography, redaction, and poetics, Belcourt ultimately argues that if signifiers of Indigenous suffering are everywhere, so too is evidence of Indigenous peoples' rogue possibility, their utopian drive.

    In NDN Coping Mechanisms: Notes from the Field, the poet takes on the political demands of queerness, mainstream portrayals of Indigenous life, love and its discontents, and the limits and uses of poetry as a vehicle for Indigenous liberation. In the process, Belcourt once again demonstrates his extraordinary craft, guile, and audacity, and the sheer dexterity of his imagination.

    August 23, 2019

    "A village emptied of its children is a haunting." "Where the heterogeneity of grief/ meets the singularity of death is the NDN experience." "A boy in love with a boy/ becomes an open window." "I hurled myself at a prison/ so the moonlight could tiptoe inside." "Truth is, I want even less/ than this already puny life." "Drunk on hope,/ which is the most NDN of all NDN feelings,/ I make out with my imaginary NDN lover/ in the ashes of every Canadian pastoral poem ever written." In his second collection (after This Wound Is a World, winner of Griffin and Indigenous Voices honors), big-breaking Canadian poet Belcourt seems nearly to fling his startling and broken-glass-sharp phrases on the page. But for all the ferocious energy and one-two punch of language here, this is also a concentrated, beautifully managed work. He clarifies his topic by explaining in an author's note, "NDN is internet shorthand used by Indigenous peoples in North America to refer to ourselves." He also explains that it sometimes means "Not Dead Native," and the spiritedness contained in that bald phrase animates the book. VERDICT Not just a poet to watch but one to read now, especially for readers interested in social justice issues--and for those who should know more.-- Barbara Hoffert, Library Journal
