Synopsis

Momentum aims to recuperate what may be had of a lyric tradition refracted through a post-Language sensibility; generating, amongst other things, responses to Proust, Shelley and the experience of dancing. Change and time are intrinsic to the book's accumulative structure and the way in which the line-breaks argue with syntax attempts to show the process, the movement, of thinking in language in time: not a stream of consciousness, but rather more like a weir, a wave, or a rubble-filled alleyway.
