Several World

Author(s): Brian Blanchfield


Poetry. As in the title phrase—borrowed from a 17th century poem by Robert Herrick—in which "several" is used to individuate, questions of singularity and the plural, of subjectivity and the collective, pervade this dream-quick poetry. In A SEVERAL WORLD there are glimpses of an "us down here"—in the understory, in the open clearing—and, by various projections, there is frequent attainment of an aerial vantage, a post otherwise abdicated. Landscape here is spatial theater, and a choreography recruits all standalone selves: solidarity beginning in an erotics of attunement, catching likenesses.
