The Vital System is the first published book by a poet already setting off sparks among readers across the globe. In these poems, the body is always at stake -- vulnerable -- and the poet dares to try and illuminate what she has called "the protective capability of violence." Burroughs's compression of phrasing, subverted syntax, and ability to release a story through cinematically sequenced images allow her to expose particular tensions that are gendered and racial as well as essentially human.
