Description:

Offering a new narrative of physical body constituted in perilous scenes of contact,Harmperforms the loss of that fictive division between a unified body and its surrounding world. Terrifying and unlooked-for harmonies emerge in these poems, which dwell in a medicalized landscape where both the body and the land are monitored and laid bare. Troubling the idea of cure by recasting it in the terms of harm,Harmshifts between warning and error, nature and the body. In the sense of Baudelaire’s “correspondences,” blood clots externalize into “sunclots” and the air is “rusty with blood.” The book troubles the idea of cure by casting it also as a form of harm itself. Moving amid the prose poem and the lyric,Harmnavigates a landscape of extremity both frightening and filled with wonders.
