Seizing: Places

by Hélène Dorion

Bilingual English / French edition

Translated and introduced by Patrick McGuinness
‘Arc Translations’: Series Editor Jean Boase-Beier

Part of our Arc Translations series edited by Jean Boase-Beier

Seizing: Places (Ravir: Les Lieux) was awarded the Prix Mallarmé in 2005, the first time that a Canadian had won this prestigious prize. It is arguably Hélène Dorion's most ambitious work to date, consisting of five sequences ('Seizing: Cities'; 'Seizing: Shadows'; 'Seizing: Mirrors; 'Seizing: Windows' and 'Seizing: Faces') and although she has written plenty since its publication, there is something culminative about this book. The book is prefaced by an introduction by the translator, and there is an afterword by the author, both of which are invaluable to those encountering Dorion's work for the first time.
