BooksActually is proud to present a reading by Rachel Blau DuPlessis.

Rachel Blau DuPlessis, poet, critic, collagist, is the author of the multi-volume long poem Drafts, (1986-2012), from Salt Publishing and Wesleyan, called “one of the major poetic achievements of our time” by Ron Silliman.

Post-Drafts books include Interstices (Subpress, 2014), Graphic Novella (Xexoxial Editions, 2015), Days and Works (Ahsahta, 2017), and both the collage-poem Numbers (from Materialist Press) and Around the Day in 80 Worlds (BlazeVOX), both slated for 2018. She has written a trilogy of critical essays on gender and poetics: The Pink Guitar, Blue Studios and Purple Passages, and several other critical books. DuPlessis edited the Selected Letters of George Oppen, and a collective memoir, The Oppens Remembered, coedited The Objectivist Nexus, and has written on Oppen, Zukofsky and Niedecker. Also published in 2017 was Selected Poems/Poesie scelte, 1978-2015, translated into Italian by Anny Ballardini, joining other translations of Drafts into Italian and into French.
