Subject to Change (New Issues Poetry & Prose Series)

Overview


Poetry. "Matthew Thorburn's SUBJECT TO CHANGE gives us a poetry of the meta-empirical, asking, 'It's not too late, is it?' Exuberant and crystalline, these poems articulate the problematic beauty of our grand mix-up, our new and comic Dark Ages. The next time a student asks me, 'What's after Postmodernism?' I'll tell her, 'Read this.'"--Angela Ball
