By Lisa Robertson

Recite your poem in your aunt.
I threw myself to the ground.
Where have been you within the night?
In a college one of the pines.
What was once the that means of the dream?


Organs, hormones, pollutants, lesions: what's a physique? In 3 Summers, Lisa Robertson takes up her previous issues with shape and literary precedent, and turns towards the timeliness of embodiment. what's form's time? the following the shape of lifestyles known as a poem speaks with the body's mortality, its thickness, its play. the ten poem-sequences in 3 Summers inflect a historical past of textual voices — Lucretius, Marx, Aby Warburg, Deleuze, the Sogdian Sutras — in a lyricism that insists on research and insurrection, in addition to the pleasures of description. The poet explores the mysterious oddness of the physique, its languor and endurance, to check the way it shapes the materiality of pondering, consisting of rivers and forests. yet in those poems' landscapes, the time of nature is inherently political. Now in basic terms time is wild, and in simple terms time — embodied right here in Lisa Robertson’s forceful cadences — can tell.
