Buzzing Hemisphere / Rumor Hemisférico
Author: Urayoán Noel
Publisher: University of Arizona Press (2015)
Buzzing Hemisphere / Rumor Hemisférico imagines an alternative to the monolingualism of the U.S. literary and political landscape, and it proposes a geo-neuro-political performance attuned to damaged or marginalized forms of knowledge, perception, and identity. Poet Urayoán Noel maps the spaces between and across languages, cities, and bodies, creating a hemispheric poetics that is both broadly geopolitical and intimately neurological.
