The Little Edges (Wesleyan Poetry Series) by Fred Moten

By Fred Moten

The Little Edges is a suite of poems that extends poet Fred Moten's experiments in what he calls "shaped prose"—a approach of arranging prose in rhythmic blocks, or occasionally shards, within the curiosity of audio-visual patterning. formed prose is a sort that works the "little edges" of lyric and discourse, and radiates out into the distance among them. As occasional items, the various poems within the ebook are the results of a request or fee to remark upon a piece of artwork, or to memorialize a specific second or individual. In Moten's poems, the problem and effort of a novel occasion or individual are remodeled through their front into the social house that they, in flip, remodel.
