The Polymers is a bold new work from one of our most
ambitious poetic minds. Structured as an imaginary science project,
the varied pieces in this collection investigate the intersection
of poetry and chemicals, specifically plastics, attempting to
understand their essential role in culture. Through various
procedures, constraints, and formal mutations, the poems express
the repeating structures fundamental to plastic molecules as they
appear in cultural and linguistic behaviours such as arguments,
anxieties, and trends.
A wildly experimental and chemically reactive work, The
Polymers thrills and provokes. You''ll never look at the world
of a poem - or the world itself - in the same way again.
