TSUNAMI FROM SOLARIS: ESSAYS ON POETRY by Aase Berg
126 x 176mm, 44 pages, black and white printing, perfect bound, 2019
Translated by Johannes Goransson and Joyelle McSweeney
For over a decade, Aase Berg’s poetry has permeated audiences from China to Romania to the US with its mix of linguistic permutations, feminist re-embodiments, and sci-fi atmospherics. Originally published in venues from daily newspapers to literary journals, the essays and columns collected here provide a characteristically refreshing set of coordinates, establishing the surreal, grotesque, and offbeat as unexpected arsenals for aesthetic and political insurgency.
