About this product
- DescriptionThe poems in The Invention of Culture mix prosodic rhythm with prose syntax and variant line shapes, as though the page were t only paper but also screen and musical score inscribed by a languaged body tapping out the news. And there is news here: the strained topicality of the poems is an index of imaginative vision meeting the world's insistence that it be experienced. These poems are stories with many names - parallax histories, social dreams, compound love songs and dirges - whose inhabitable spatial structures are like event horizons that mean to let you come back to the world.
- Author BiographyLisa Samuels grew up in the United States, Sweden, and the Middle East.
