Poetry. Translated from the German by Kurt Beals. Anja Utler's poems touch the ground where feeling and thinking begin to take form and burst from the body, burst into language. Their interweaving pulls us into an almost still undifferentiated, preconscious world where the human body and the surrounding landscape are fused. Stretching syntax and semantics, Utler's poems trace speech to its roots in lungs, throat, tongue, and let it emerge as sound and song.
