Summary Her new collection is philosophical, asserting that people have no individual identity: they are shape-shifting entities composed of objects beside them, things that continuously affect their essence--which isn’t an essence at all. Rather, it’s an existence, and one constantly in flux. The collection includes poems, prose poems, and short reflections that resemble snapshots of those changes, illustrating the transfer that occurs between people, objects, and ideas, as is suggested by the book’s title (taken from "The Sacred Fount" by Henry James).
Subject LinkAmerican poetry.
LinkAmerican essays.
