Rooted in conventional jap aesthetics and meditations on modern neuroscience, a beautiful new quantity from an important American poet.

Acclaimed as "one of the main interesting woman poets of our time" (BOMB), Kimiko Hahn is a shape-shifter, a poet who seeks novel varieties for her totally unique subject material and "stands as a welcome voice of experimentation and keenness" (Bloomsbury Review). In Brain Fever, Hahn integrates the hot findings of technological know-how, historical jap aesthetics, and observations from her lifestyles as a girl, spouse, mom, daughter, and artist.

Rooted in meditations on modern neuroscience, Brain Fever takes as its topic the mysteries of the human mind—the nature of desires and thoughts, the doubtless illusory nature of linear time, the complexity of conveying like to a baby. in a single poem, "A Bowl of Spaghetti," she cites a comparability that researchers draw among unraveling "the hundreds of thousands of miles of wires within the [human] mind" and "untangling a bowl of spaghetti," and hence she untangles a reminiscence of her personal: "I have an previous photograph: Rei in her excessive chair closely / picking each one strand to mash in her mouth. // used to be she ? was once that sailor costume from mom? / Did I prepare dinner that sauce from scratch? if this is the case, there has been a carrot within the pot."

Equally encouraged via Sei Shonagon's tenth-century Pillow Book and the most recent findings of cognitive learn, Brain Fever is an exciting mix of the well timed and the timeless.
