Known for the transcendent, abstractionist poems of Nomina, Volkman's newest collection returns to tangible experiences of the body--its range of expressivity and physical movement in space. Where is the body in travel? What space does it occupy in dreams and memory? With rich perplexity, Whereso responds to dance, performance, and position in time--translating flight of the body into language and line.
Karen Volkman is the author of Crash's Law, winner of the National Poetry Series; Spar, winner of the Iowa Poetry Prize and the James Laughlin Award; and Nomina. She teaches at the University of Montana in Missoula, Montana.
