Fiona Bryson & Keren Cytter (Eds.)
The cutting-edge Poetic Series, founded and edited by Keren Cytter and Fiona Bryson, combines poetry, literature and the visual arts as a challenge to traditional forms of narrative. Fear of Language, the third book in the series, takes its title from the work of emerging Slovenian poet Katja Perat, whose provocative verse is featured alongside excerpts from American poet Eileen Myles’s upcoming memoir, Afterglow, and American poet-professor Judith Goldman’s spare poetry. Images collected from the internet by Dutch artist Willem de Rooij showing destroyed and looted cultural heritage sites in Iraq, Mali, Egypt, Syria and Bosnia-Herzegovina, are interspersed throughout the book and featured on the cover of this excellent addition to the series.
