How To Make Words of Rubble | Isabel Sobral Campos

People in this story

Isabel Sobral Campos, Associate Teaching Professor in English & Director of the Writing Center

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.
