In P L A C E Jorie Graham explores how imagination, intuition, and experience help us navigate in a world hurtling towards annihilation, how to resist the politics that regard the human person as disposable. Her poems find places of achieved presence in the natural world, in human sensation, and investigate our irreducible ‘inner landscapes’, sites of our originality. They test the creative tensions within and between interior and exterior life – particularly as these are shaped by language. P L A C E enjoins us to inhabit once again and to the full a responsive and responsible human world. P L A C E is startling, original, and in form and content deeply relevant to our world.
