"What follows occurs in a moment; a flash. It would detail a single tangibility if that did not entail all sensation." Stacy Doris charts the invisible, investigates the unborn, and describes everything not yet imagined. The tightly constructed verses of "Knot" weave imagery of decay and birth, science and culture: the warp and weft of cloth, digestion, wave particles, and a talking cat. Linguistic play abounds, and Doris presents us with a human double bind: to cling to the stability of the tangle or to participate in the circuits of entanglement.
Stacy Doris earned her AB in literature and society at Brown University, and her MFA in English and creative writing from the Iowa Writers' Workshop. She is the author of Kildare, Paramour, and Conference in English, as well as three books written in French. An active translator, she has coedited three anthologies of recent French poetry translated into English.
