Description - Nervous Device by Catherine Wagner

In Nervous Device, Catherine Wagner takes inspiration from Blake's "bounding line" to explore the poem as a body at the intersection between poet and audience. Using this as a figure for various sexual, political, and economic interactions, Wagner's poems shift between seductive lyricism and brash fragmentation as they negotiate the failure of human connection in the twilight of American empire.
