Associate Teaching Professor of English and Director of the Writing Center Isabel Sobral Campos has published How to Make Words of Rubble via Blue Figure Press. From the publisher’s website:
“How to Make Words of Rubble is a book-length poem by Isabel Sobral Campos that narrates maternal grief and anxiety, regurgitating the languid remains of abject motherhood from the depths of an Old English swamp. A hybrid between choral ode and musical score, the poem seeks a new horology, a resurrected capacity to inhabit time in the presence of disaster. It is also a dirge hauled upon a mother’s impaled head to Heorot. This poem ruminates in the dead of ecology.”
Copies are currently available for purchase online. Congratulations, Isabel!
