PMPoetry. "HYPERGLOSSIA is part anthropology, part anatomy; it is part song and part dissonance. Yet Szymaszek's poetry is always too wily, and too alive with its own pleasures--in short, too wise--to accept any conscription to stable identity. In this 'skirmish with a makeshift tongue,' the poet keeps us 'attuned to close-calls and eruptions of selfhoods.' Demonstrating that language and identity are 'a temporary site,' this poetry is a cultural 'mirroror,' full of sly heresies which abet Szymaszek's poetic subversions so that she is able to 'elude detection and find company.' Indeed, in her company, we can be grateful to find such a 'superior sayerer'"--Elizabeth Robinson. Cover art: "Betty's Revenge" by Laurel Spark
