Poetry. Art. LGBT Studies. Poetry with graphic elements which contribute to the text's meaning. "Paratexts and processing suggestions stream through Kari Edwards's IDUNA, spilling the language into frames set as much by procedural constraints as by the conventions of any inventory of poetic verse...A machinic drive echoes in this work as a human, subjective voice struggles to come through the registers of current language events, noise, news, records, communications...Form embodies possibilities enabled by the instructions of forced justification, font shifts, hard returns, tabs, chunked blocks, and other basic elements of text processing..."-- Johanna Drucker.
