The Multiple PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Multiple free pdf An unspeakably excessive reality is met with unremitting intensity in this collection of poetry--the imbroglio of entwinements and failed copulas within and around humankind compose the "multiple" in question, the reality underlying and giving lie to society's stereotypes. Witty, multitonal, musical, propositional, and painterly, the poems interweave personal narrative with political crises and make no effort to take the edge off the razor-sharp examination of the contemporary sociopolitical situation that takes shape throughout the collection. What emerges in the lines is as surprising and unforgiving as it is disarmingly delightful, creating an engaging lyricism that appeals to philosophy as well as literature.
