Event Description

Join us for a book launch and reading with Montana-based poet Isabel Sobral Campos. “Your Person Doesn’t Belong To You is a transformative work, immersed in the intermittence, light, and expansion of character as embodied and voiced by Jeanne d’Arc — who here is a composite of historical figure, main character from Carl Dreyer’s 1928 film The Passion of Joan of Arc, and manifestation of Isabel Sobral Campos’ skillful and compassionate handle on poetic material. Campos uses a poly-vocal mode of address, a fluid array of changing forms, and an attentiveness to the overlaps and contrasts between relative time and absolute time in order to read and explore the inward movements of consciousness in states of visionary duress. Alchemical in its commitment to giving sonic shape to the near imperceptible, Your Person Doesn’t Belong To You is mesmerizing, moving, and strange.” — Anselm Berrigan Isabel Sobral Campos is a poet, Assistant Professor of literature at Montana Tech of the University of Montana, and co-founder of the Sputnik & Fizzle publishing series. Your Person Doesn’t Belong To You (Vegetarian Alcoholic Press, 2018) is her first book of poetry. She is the author of the chapbooks Material (No, Dear and Small Anchor Press, 2015) and You Will Be Made of Stone (dancing girl press, 2018). Her poems have also appeared in the Brooklyn Rail, Boston Review, Bone Bouquet, Small Po[r]tions, and Oxidant/Engine’s BoxSet Series among other venues. Some of her work is forthcoming in BAX2018: Best American Experimental Writing (Wesleyan University Press).
