Sobre o livro
Selected by Fady Joudah as a winner of the 2017 National Poetry Series, Jos Charless revolutionary second collection of poetry, feeld, is a lyrical unraveling of the circuitry of gender and speech, defiantly making space for bodies that have been historically denied their own vocabulary.
i care so much abot the whord i cant reed. In feeld, Charles stakes her claim on the language available to speak about trans experience, reckoning with the narratives that have come before by reclaiming the language of the past. In Charless electrifying transliteration of EnglishChaucerian in affect, but revolutionary in effectwhat is old is made new again. gendre is not the tran organe / gendre is yes a hemorage. did u kno not a monthe goes bye / a tran i kno doesnt dye. The world of feeld is our own, but off-kilter, distinctly queermaking visible what was formerly and forcefully hidden: trauma, liberation, strength, and joy.
Urgent and vital, feeld composes a new and highly inventive lyrical narrative of what it means to live inside a marked body.
