Poetry. Mandatory reading for devotees of the long poem. In her second collection of poetry, HELL LIGHT FLESH, Klara du Plessis returns with a Dantesque trilogy on family, punishment, and the ferocity and brilliance of creation. HELL LIGHT FLESH drops the reader into a narrative claustrophobically entwined in unquestioned systemic violence where art and art criticism act as a consistent glimmer of hope. Over and over, the poem lends itself to allegory, and yields to layers of interpretation. HELL LIGHT FLESH is mandatory reading for devotees of the long poem and fans of du Plessis' thrilling brand of essayistic poetry alike.
