Poems of the Interstitium

Poems of the Interstitium

Ratings: (0)|Views: 92|Likes:
Published by Ian Irvine (Hobson)
This Digital Chapbook presents 23 poems by Ian Irvine (Hobson). The bulk of the poems were published (in anthologies or journals) between 1998 and 2007. The term 'Interstitium' refers to a place between larger structures - thus a threshold of sorts, a zone where something is neither completely one thing nor completely another. The title acknowledges perhaps the fundamental species challenge of the post-modern period - the capacity of social, cultural and political institutions in a globalized era to stay flexible and fluid toward the 'other' rather than rigid, intolerant & unyielding (a major cause of the traumas of the 20th century). The key poems here are Hiroshima Dance, Europe After the Rain & The Pale Moon Left us Here. This collection copyright Ian Irvine 2013, all rights reserved. [published as a digital chapbook by Mercurius Press, Bendigo Australia, 2013]. About half of the poems also featured in Facing the Demon of Noontide, Irvine's first collection of poetry - published in the US in 1999.
