The acclaimed poet, memoirist, and essayist Maureen N. McLane right here charts a brand new direction into important genre-bending territories. no longer a singular, no longer a memoir, now not a lyric, Mz N: the serial: A Poem-in-Episodes offers whatever else—“life . . . a continuous allegory” (to invoke Keats): a existence excessive, episodic, woman, sexual, philosophical, romantic, analytic. monitoring the expansion of 1 poet’s brain, switchbacking its method via American English, Mz N toggles among tale and tune. this can be a poetry either “furious / & alive.”

Alive to the lash of affection, the longueurs of youth, the boundaries of id, Mz N: the serial: A Poem-in-Episodes is a bravura scan in life-writing—an assaying, a trying out, a remodeling, an honoring of the tentative and the torqued. what's it to be modern, to be “one / between different ones” in a “cracking world”? How does a physique vibrate into being? How is a brain produced from different minds? Seizing the queer realities of any lifestyles, Mz N explores how one is shocked, seduced, and struck into speech, suggestion, music, silence. “Then, what's life?” cried Shelley. So too Mz N.
