Abstract

"This long poem combines a poetic narrative with citations from critical texts to create an environment in which the poem offers a theoretical and interpretive approach to its contents. Structured into eight books, the poem explores the isolation and alienation created in a world which is slowly enveloped by a machine. As well, it examines how the individual and the machine are alike when they must comment on their environment using the language and opinions of a specific culture. While attempting to find new space in the literary tradition, this poem breaks from conventional poetic modes by offering a style of poetics which reflects the automated media of the contemporary world."
