Mezzanine: Poems

Paperback

Price: $16.99

Overview

In her striking collection of poems, Zoë Hitzig investigates how we seek certitude, power, and domination over the natural world and one another. Hitzig brings a scientific rigor to her searing lyricism, as well as a raucous energy and willingness to allow her work to dwell in states of uncertainty and precariousness. The result is an original voice that is incisive and unsparing, but also passionate and tender. Her poems probe the authority of language and logic, questioning the sovereignty of the technological, economic, legal, and political systems that mediate our lives.

Urgent in its creation of a new way of looking at our social and natural worlds, Mezzanine is an insightful and visceral debut collection from a poet whose work is poised to leave a lasting mark.

Reviews
Zoë Hitzig's exquisitely engineered Mezzanine lands the reader in a nether place of talking commodities, misplaced agency, category mistakes, and radical dysphoria. Into such dire circumstances Hitzig dives headfirst, feverish, an investigator who grapples with reality by recreating it from the inside out. In other words, she is a poet, and an extraordinary one at that...Here and there, and just in time, Mezzanine reminds us what there is to love in the human, and what it feels like to to feel it's still too soon to give up. –Timothy Donnelly, author of The Problem of Many
