of the hexed
In this long sequence of poems, following her debut collection lemon, egg, bread (Test Centre, 2017), Laura Elliott marks the meeting between a lyric of the written body and the politics of classification. The book's concrete typewritten images use selected alphabetical subheadings of Women-- taken from the 41st Edition of the Library of Congress Subject Headings. Incremental and disquieting, rib-boning is a radical object, a sutured archive.
