Virginia Woolf and Poetry (Oxford University Press, 2021) is Emily Kopley’s first book. It argues that Woolf’s career was shaped by her impression of the conflict between poetry and the novel, a conflict she often figured as one between masculine and feminine, old and new, bound and free.

Join us IN PERSON for the official McGill-Queen’s University Press launch reading of two new poetry books, Jason Camlot’s Vlarf and John Emil Vincent’s Bitter in the Belly.

The reading can host up to 40 attendees in the brand new Argo Bookshop space; vaccination status will be checked at the door and masks will be required throughout the event.
