The Magnificent Light of Morning
Mattie McClane's book-length poem confront's the dire effects of a hyper-masculine culture, looking at domestic and institutional violence. It contrasts the fallout with the healing aspects of nature. Prompted by Lacanian psychoanalytic language theory, The Magnificent Light of Morning explores time as history, being male or the Symbolic and fluidity as being female or the Semiotic.
