Daniel Groleau Landry is a jack-of-all-trades. First and foremost a poet, he has also been a performer and facilitator for many years and, along the way, added music to his many flourishing talents. His first published collection, Rêver au réel (2012), won the Trillium Prize for Poetry in 2014. Rêver au réel was subsequently translated in English by Howard Scott and released under the title Dreaming Reality. His most recent book, Fragments de ciels, published in 2018, confirmed his important place and uniqueness on the Franco-Ontarian poetry scene. Groleau Landry trumps literary convention and reads somewhere between rough and empty, focused the emotional and aesthetic dimensions of the poet’s life, while at the same time calling it into question.
