Lichtenberg Figures by Dr Ben Lerner

Book Description

"The Lichtenberg Figures," winner of the Hayden Carruth Award, is an unconventional sonnet sequence that interrogates the relationship between language and memory, violence and form. Lichtenberg figures are fern-like electrical patterns that can appear on (and quickly fade from) the bodies of people struck by lightning.Throughout this playful and elegiac debut with its flashes of autobiography, intellection, comedy, and critique the vocabulary of academic theory collides with American slang and the idiom of the Old Testament meets the jargon of the Internet to display an eclectic sensibility.Ben Lerner, the youngest poet ever published by Copper Canyon Press, is co-founder of "No: a journal of the arts." He earned an MFA from Brown University and is currently a Fulbright scholar in Spain."
