 About the Book 

Poetry. HYPERGLOSSIA is part anthropology, part anatomy- it is part song and part dissonance. Yet Szymaszeks poetry is always too wily, and too alive with its own pleasures--in short, too wise--to accept any conscription to stable identity. In thisMorePoetry. HYPERGLOSSIA is part anthropology, part anatomy- it is part song and part dissonance. Yet Szymaszeks poetry is always too wily, and too alive with its own pleasures--in short, too wise--to accept any conscription to stable identity. In this skirmish with a makeshift tongue, the poet keeps us attuned to close-calls and eruptions of selfhoods. Demonstrating that language and identity are a temporary site, this poetry is a cultural mirroror, full of sly heresies which abet Szymaszeks poetic subversions so that she is able to elude detection and find company. Indeed, in her company, we can be grateful to find such a superior sayerer--Elizabeth Robinson. Cover art: Bettys Revenge by Laurel Spar
