Description

Prize-winning poet and hypertext pioneer Stephanie Strickland pushes the boundaries of the printed word to create a completely original poetic experience. V is an invertible volume with two beginnings. Turning the volume from WaveSon.nets to Losing L'una and back again, over and over, creates a fluidity that extends to the poems themselves: words slip and pour across numbers that have their own lives. In the undulant fold at the book's open center one jumps, via a Web site pointer, to V's third section, which will exist in electronic space at www.Vniverse.com. V's muse is Simone Weil, and in this new book Strickland's elegy for Weil is widened to include a long line of known and conjured women. An extraordinary work that is meant to be glimpsed and scanned and begun again, V pulses with many orders of knowledge, organization, and rhythm.
