Synopsis

Atopia grapples with the political climate of the United States manifested through our everyday lives. Sandra Simonds charts the formations and deformations of the social and political through the observations of the poem’s speakers, interspersed with the language of social media, news reports, political speech, and the dialogue of friends, children, strangers, and politicians. The Los Angeles Review of Books characterized Simonds’s work as “robust, energetic, fanciful, even baroque” and “a necessary counterforce to the structures of gender, power, and labor that impinge upon contemporary life.” These poems reflect on what it means to be human, what it means to build communities within a political structure it also opposes.
