book.jpgDoes poetry have a metabolic dimension? Pura Lopez-Colomé's Watchword (Wesleyan), translated from Spanish to English by Forrest Gander, envisions the body as a mystically rich reservoir of experience and language. She and Gander read poems from this bilingual edition while reflecting on poetry and translation, intuition and abstraction, and metaphor and illness.
