- Author: Benaway, GwenDate:Created2020Summary:
day/break, poet Gwen Benaway's fourth collection of work, explores the everyday poetics of the trans feminine body. Through intimate experiences and conceptualizations of trans life, day/breakasks what it means to be a trans woman, both within the text and out in the physical world. Shifting between theory and poetry, Benaway questions how gender, sexuality, and love intersect with the violence and transmisogyny of the nation state and established literary institutions. In beautiful lyric verse, day/breakreveals the often-unseen other worlds of trans life, where body, self, and sex are transformed, becoming more than fixed binary locations.Original Publisher: Toronto, Book*hug PressLanguage(s): English
