Abstract:

In her first new collection in five years--her most exhilarating, personal, and formally inventive to date--Graham explores the limits of the human and the uneasy seductions of the post-human. Conjuring an array of voices and perspectives--from bots, to the holy shroud, to the ocean floor, to a medium transmitting from beyond the grave--these poems give urgent form to the ever-increasing pace of transformation of our planet and ourselves. As it navigates cyber life, 3D-printed "life," life after death, biologically, chemically, and electronically modified life, Fast lights up the border of our new condition as individuals and as a species on the brink -- Book jacket.
