What Stirs by Margaret Christakos
Book DescriptionWhere does the fragile, robust self reside when 'personal' voice is sent out online into an ironic masquerade ball of alias identity and wanton proxy? What stirs us? Can there be anything authentic about feeling anything anymore? In What Stirs, Margaret Christakos looks at our primal appetite for attachment through the modern norms of codependency and co-existence, understanding that the postmodern digital era has created an atmosphere where the vulnerability and tenderness of the individual is both profanely exposed and brazenly reinvented in the arrival of virtual identity. Often playful but never trifling, Christakos's work layers the ecstatic possibilities of lyric poetry, the mundane and intimate extremes of motherhood, and her continued curiosity with experimental poetics in a thoughtful collection of sensual, language-focused, and wonderfully aural poems.

Multitudes, Paperback (November 2013)
Poems chronicling the contemporary self's fluctuating desire between near-obliterating connectedness and panoptical self-surveillance in the social media age.
Sooner, Paperback (October 2001)View all books by Margaret Christakos
Imagines poetry as a kind of cubist fascination, at times even a fascination with fascination itself. This book features the delusory spiral reasoning of artistic schools; the fluid politic of desire, gender and domesticity; and, the recurrent trials of revulsion and arousal.
