Item description for The Invention of Culture by Lisa Samuels...

The poems in The Invention of Culture mix prosodic rhythm with prose syntax and variant line shapes, as though the page were not 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.

Promise Angels is dedicated to bringing you great books at great prices. Whether you read for entertainment, to learn, or for literacy - you will find what you want at!
