Literary Nonfiction. Hybrid Genre. Essay. "For William Carlos Williams a poem is a small or large machine made out of words. Thalia Field and Abigail Lang have taken this proposition seriously, yet playfully. Their luminous pas de deux ludically conjures Gertrude Stein to construct a textual game that leaps linguistic and cultural rifts to find the commonalities of 'various sorts of talk' through which 'the name is spread from link to link as if by a chain.' Together these poets return us to the primal force of language: naming"--Susan Howe.
