Derek Beaulieu: Brevflodslette (2021)

Brevflodslette is a concrete poem made with Letraset by Derek Beaulieu. Published by Non Plus Ultra 2021. Whirlpools, the many sounds of the water or the river of letters. It gurgles and ripples, hisses and hums, and not only the title of the piece suggests a correspondence between the information transported by the river, but by the letter and by time. We're on our way somewhere. All this can be read and seen in Derek Beaulieu's beautiful visual and spatial poetry, and especially in Brevflodslette which continues to fold-out and unfold in consistent and inciting ways. The poet's style is recognizable, his voice clear, the reading of the poem not easy to finish. – Martin Glaz Serup Derek Beaulieu is the author/editor of over twenty collections of poetry, prose, and criticism, including two volumes of his selected work, Please, No More Poetry (2013) and Konzeptuelle Arbeiten (2017). His most recent volume of fiction, a, A Novel was published by Paris’s Jean Boîte Editions. Beaulieu has exhibited his visual work across Canada, the United States, and Europe and has won multiple local and national awards for his teaching and dedication to students. Derek Beaulieu holds a PhD in Creative Writing from Roehampton University and is the Director of Literary Arts at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity.
