Abstract

Drawing on recent life writing by incarcerated Canadian authors, this paper examines how imprisoned writers translate the largely unimaginable physical and social space of the prison to non-imprisoned readers. While some prison texts suggest that, as Michael Hardt puts it, "Prison is our society in its most realized form," others insist on the prison as an inalienable space, a place of radical difference.
