Drawn and caged

Two promising first poetry collections employ common tropes to good effect

How to Draw a Rhinoceros

Kate Sutherland


If I Were in a Cage I’d Reach Out for You

Adèle Barclay

Nightwood Editions

KATE SUTHERLAND’S How to Draw a Rhinoceros is a curious little book, presenting a series of poems about rhinoceroses with a focus on their commodification as spectacle over the course of western colonial history. The result is a book as much about that history as about its putative subject, with poems drawing from the language of the various menageries and emporiums that put rhinoceroses on display; the poems become menageries of their own.
