Brunt, Oct. 2009, no. 5, pp. 22 - 26

"Coming To Terms With Fickle As Poison" is an essay describing Andrea Cooper's Fickle As Poison, a 15-minute looped video projection accompanied by framed photographs and printed excerpts of dialogue. Fickle As Poison is drawn from Cooper's own family's Newfoundland narrative traditions.

Jeremy Todd states, "Fickle As Poison enacts a process of re-writing, re-telling, re-staging, and re-invention, playfully exploring and problematizing how meaning is inscribed through narrative," (23).
